SENIORS SCENE: Kent Street Showcase featured ‘fabulous acts’

It’s been a great week of entertainment at Kent Street.

The Kent Street Showcase was a wonderful success featuring many fabulous acts. There were many people who came out of the woodwork to make this evening special.

Thank you to all of the volunteers and performers for bringing such creativity to the stage.

• The Kent Street Choristers’ concert, Coming Home, was also a delightful success.

Highlights included an inspiring song written by local Michael Conway Baker, entitled He Ran With a Dream, about Terry Fox’s journey. Other classics that were sung beautifully were As Time Goes By and Climb Every Mountain.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this night possible, including hard-working conductor, Gale Lindenthaler and accompanist Julie Lee.

Congratulations, Choristers – truly an evening to remember.

• Gather your friends and come enjoy our Strawberry Tea.
