The singers at Port Harmony are really excited to be performing again after an hiatus of a couple of years because of Covid.

The next concert entitled “Earth & Sky” will take the audience on a celestial journey of familiar songs from musicals and movies such as “Hair”, “Sound of Music”, “Mary Poppins”, “Beaches”, “The Muppet Movie”; the beautiful ballad “Fields of Gold”, the old favourites “Fly Me to the Moon” and “Moon River” and many more.

Joanna Davies of Port Harmony told News Of The Area, “Port Harmony is very fortunate to have Dr Chris Hawkins as our Musical Director.”

Dr Hawkins graduated from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and has a Masters and two doctorates in music, where she mastered in composition and conducting.

Her career has been extensive and includes being a musical examiner, lecturer, conductor and performer.

Dr Hawkins also plays numerous string instruments.

She is also a founder and Musical Director of the Bay String Orchestra, based in Salamander Bay.

“Chris has a special desire to develop a solid musical environment in the Port Stephens area.”
