Online gala concert
3pm, Thursday 15 October 2020
In a real treat of hilarity and joy, we are celebrating our wonderful seniors with an amazing lineup too good to miss:
- Frank Woodley
- Vika & Linda
- Continental Drift Quartet
Join us as our host, renowned comedian Frank Woodley (previously of Lano and Woodley), leads us through an hour of musical indulgence and community-focused shenanigans.
Laugh out loud as Frank Woodley discovers how vibrant the Boroondara community truly is and celebrates our seniors in this first-ever online Boroondara Seniors Festival.
The entertainment continues with Melbourne’s much-loved singing sisters, Vika & Linda. Having just achieved #1 status on the ARIA charts with their recent album, we’re thrilled to have this dynamic duo serenade us from their lounge room.
Bringing the rich and varied musical traditions of continental café music to your door is the Continental Drift Quartet. Indulge in a smorgasbord of romantic jazz, continental classics and frantic gypsy music.
Premiering at 3pm, Thursday 15 October 2020, it’s the perfect opportunity to find a comfy place and tune in, knowing you’re watching
along with many others from your neighbourhood. To watch the concert simply visit Seniors Festival.
The concert can also be streamed on demand through our website for a limited time or a free DVD of the performance can be sent to your home.
Fiona Lynch, President of the Camberwell Morning Garden Club from Balwyn North, said that like so many of her friends she is really pleased that the Seniors Festival is still going ahead online.
“I am a very social person who really misses connecting with my friends and family and I use technology way more during lockdown,” said Fiona.
“If you are nervous or unsure about using technology to access the gala concert the best idea is to grab a family member, friend or local kid to help you.
“The biggest barrier to using this technology is fear. It can be fun and liberating once you know how,” Fiona said.
