Whats On Central Coast Support Original Music image Whats On Central Coast Logo Button imageWHATS IN A NAME PART 2:
As a follow on from the first in the series of protecting your name; part 2 deals with the pitfalls within the industry itself to give adequate support to our original musicians nurturing their craft.

To run a household you need income; to run a business you need work to get income to keep the business going; obviously. So how can it be that original musicians have to resort to using different names or even worse NOT promoting cover gigs to fund their craft for fear of damaging their reputation – there is something really wrong with this picture!

Fairhaven Services imageWhats On Logo button image POINT CLARE OP SHOP:
Customers entering Fairhaven’s Point Clare Op Shop at 209 Brisbane Water Drive, Point Clare constantly remark ‘I can’t believe the amount of goods you stock and how cheap everything is!’ It is therefore not surprising that the op shop has gained the reputation of being one of the best Op shops on the Central Coast and has expanded to meet demand.

We offer 5 buildings full to the brim – toys/games, clothing/accessories, jewelry, homewares, linen, new giftware, books & dvd/cds, new craft and makings for craft, furniture, decorator and collectable items, electrical, luggage, tools/hardware – something for everyone in the family. In addition we offer customers the opportunity to browse through Gallery 209 which displays the works of local artists as well as upcycled items proudly made by some of Fairhaven’s clients with disabilities.

God King and Country imageWhats On Logo button image WORLD WAR 1 REMEMBERED IN MUSIC:
Central Coast Chorale presents a memorial program of music inspired by World War One

Titled, ‘1915: God, King and Country’, the forty-voice choir, which features local Central Coast singers and led by music director, Christopher Bowen OAM, perform stirring anthems that motivated men to enlist to reflections of sadness of the war's toll on human lives.

Bowen says of the program, “The music of the war era was immensely patriotic and appealed to a soldier’s sense of duty to protect families and loved ones.

“Religious faith and national loyalties influenced mothers especially, who ultimately paid a high price for their sons' participation.”

The Chorale will perform haunting excerpts from Bowen’s 2014 critically acclaimed, ‘War Requiem’.

Elke Hook, Mangrove Mountain resident, and Sean Le Breton from Narara, will feature as soloists in a piece written especially for the concert by local composer, Shayne Leslie of Wyoming, based on John 15:13.

The Chorale will perform England’s other national anthem, ‘Jerusalem’, which was specifically written by British composer, Sir Hubert Parry at the request of poet, Robert Bridges in 1916 to “brace the spirit of the nation [to] accept with cheerfulness all the sacrifices necessary.”
Other songs featured include Henry Purcell’s ‘Thou Knowest Lord’, Charles Stanford’s ‘A Song of Battle’, John Ireland’s ‘Greater Love Hath No Man’ and Vaughan Williams’ ‘O How Amiable’.

Concertgoers will get a glimpse of how music stirred patriotism amongst civilian Australians and encouraged them to enlist for God, King and country. It is a must for those who want to honour and remember the fallen.

Tickets are on sale through the Chorale’s website or available at the door. The group rehearses Wednesday nights and new members are always welcome. Contact Anne Darlington for more information on 02 4307 9355.

Century Challenge Bike Ride imageWhats On Logo button image CENTURY CHALLENGE CYCLE RIDE:
Sunday 17th May 2015

The Rotary Club of Erina are 'challenging' everyone on the Central Coast to enter their annual Cycle Ride at the scenic Mount Penang Parklands.

Funds raised from the event will support Rotary community projects including Coast Shelter, which provides accommodation and support to those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
“It is a great day and wonderful to see everyone join in, get some exercise, and help those in need in the community, all at the same time”, President of Coast Shelter Gavin Shepherd said.

Since 2003, this event has enabled the Rotary Club of Erina to donate over $120,000 to Coast Shelter.

The Ride spokesperson, Gillian Winchester said “The 2015 ride will be the biggest and the best ever, with wonderful support from cycle shops and other corporate sponsors who help to make sure that the ride is fun and safe for everyone”.
“Events such as the Cycle Ride are fantastic fundraising opportunities which allow Coast Shelter to continue providing vital services to people in need on the Central Coast”, Executive Officer of Coast Shelter Laurie Maher said.

Volunteers from the Rotary Club have been working alongside Brisbane Water Police and the Roads and Maritime Service to plan a safe ride for all ages and fitness levels. There are 100km and 50km rides for serious cyclists, a 20km ride for beginners and a Kids Challenge for those aged 4 to 12 years.
The Cycle Ride starts and ends at Mount Penang Parklands where plenty of parking is available.

Registration ranges from $10 for the Kids Challenge to $75 for the 100km Challenge.

Riders are also encouraged to ask their friends and family to sponsor their ride which will help to raise extra funds for Coast Shelter to help those in need.
For example a $100 sponsorship could provide approximately 30 meals at the Coast Community Centre and $500 could provide a family in crisis with a ‘start-up kit’ for their new home.

Cyclists will be provided with refreshments and a sausage sizzle to finish off the day.

Themed Concert – Dreams & Wonder

Musicians & poets have been inspired by dreams and wonder as far back as the beginning of time.

Many of the great songs about dreams have been passed down through generations, while new ones continue to be written and performed.

This is an opportunity for members & guests to find songs about dreams – whether traditional, from the folk revival of the 60s or your own.

Bogan Song Cycle imageWhats On Logo button image BOGAN SONG CYCLE TOUR 2015:
Musical Cabaret at its finest comes to the Coast

We are pleased to announce that from Tuesday 31st of March, tickets for the hilarious Bogan Song Cycle, musical comedy cabaret, are finally available. After their spectacular success at Sydney Fringe and the prestigious Adelaide Fringe’s Spiegel Tent, the boys bring their hit show home. With six locations to choose from around the NSW Central Coast, the tour travels from venues north to south.

The Bogan Song Cycle is the brainchild of Dorian Mode. A proud Coastie, when not holding up the bar of his local fishing club, Dorian is often found out and about the Coast fishing, teaching or gigging. Mode called on all these central coast lifestyle experiences when composing the music and lyrics of The Bogan Song Cycle. He’s also the first person in Australia to have a doctorate in Bogans!

Andrew Wilkie, (virtuoso vibraphonist and composer of Tap Dogs) and local chippie from Avoca Beach, accompanies Mode to perform sublimely smooth music with droll lyrics and descriptive storytelling unveiling bogan lifestyles.

Dorian Mode and Andrew Wilkie are The Bogan Song Cycle.

The Bogan Song Cycle is a successful recipient of ART CENTRAL funding 2015.
