Thank You For The Music: Bowraville Theatre Singers make triumphant return to the stage

The Bowraville Theatre Singers delighted the appreciative crowed at the Bowraville Theatre on Sunday.

FOR the first time in more than two years Nambucca Valley music lovers were treated to an exhilarating performance by the Bowraville Theatre Singers on Sunday afternoon, 4 September 2022.

Fire, floods and the global pandemic have prevented the much loved choir being able to rehearse and hold performances.

Sunday’s show, presented as a fundraiser for the iconic Bowraville Theatre, was as much appreciated by choir members as it was by the crowd of nearly 200.

The Musical Director of the Bowraville Theatre Singers, Mrs Lissa Argue, told News Of The Area, “It is just so good to be sharing the joy of music with everybody again after all this time.”

The last couple of interrupted years resulted in the choir being smaller than fans are accustomed to and the program known as ‘Bringing Back the Music’ featured a wider variety of musical genres than in past performances.

The polished show opened with a pitch perfect version of the ABBA standard ‘Thank you for the music’ and closed with the audience joining the choir in an uplifting tribute to Olivia Newton John.

Along the afternoons musical journey the audience were treated to stirring solos, instrumental classics, a rendition of the vintage Dad and Dave radio serial and even some superbly delivered bush poetry.

Concert goers were treated to a guest appearance by Year 11 student Tilly Howard who presented works that form part of her exam for the Associate Diploma of Music with the Australian Music Examination Board.

The pieces on both clarinet and piano were a perfect match for the acoustics of the Bowraville Theatre.

If the smiles on the faces of those exiting the theatre were anything to go by, the return of Bowraville Theatre Singers performances to the cultural landscape of the Nambucca Valley is very welcome indeed.
