The concert is entitled ‘Love Defies Gravity’ and features a collection of songs focusing on love, life and joy.

“The choirists rehearse each Wednesday at Salamander Bay from 4:30 to 6:30 pm under the watchful eye of the classically trained Musical Director, Dr Chris Hawkins,” Joanna Davies of Port Harmony told News Of The Area.

“Rehearsals are accompanied by David Scrogie, who has been associated with choral music for 70 years as a conductor, accompanist, and vocalist.

“He has also worked with brass bands as an instrumentalist,” she said.

Dr Hawkins is a graduate of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, earning a Masters degree and two Doctorates, with a focus on composition and conducting.

Her extensive career includes roles as a musical examiner, lecturer, conductor, teacher and performer.

Dr Hawkins, who plays numerous string and woodwind instruments, also launched the Bay String Ensemble, based in Salamander Bay, in 2021.

Tickets for the concert are available at Soldiers Point Bowling Club and Essence Cafe in Nelson Bay for $25 each.
