Put a note in your diary for the upcoming Southern Voices Concert to be held at the Kettering Community Hall commencing 2.00pm Sunday 13 November.

The show is called Anything Goes and will feature swing and big-band songs from George Gershwin, Irving Berlin and Duke Ellington, plus some beautiful earlier works, such as Across the Wide Missouri, Love's Old Sweet Song and All Through The Night in four-part harmony by a 35-voice choir who have been singing together for 10 years.

The Men in Black will feature their popular choreographed Gendarme's Duet, and American Trilogy, three folk songs from the American Civil War era, recorded by Elvis Presley back in the 1960s. In the Men in Black's annual concert in September in the Hobart Town Hall, American Trilogy was the hit of the day, with huge ovations from the audience.

The men from both choirs will combine for The Song of the Pirates from Gilbert & Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance.

The concert will conclude with both choirs and two accompanists on twin keyboards presenting Irving Berlin's I Love a Piano. It will be awesome!!

Please note that the concert starts at 2.00pm, with complimentary afternoon tea at interval, and the concert should end at about 4.15pm. Ticket prices are $15, $12 concession and $5 for children.  Tickets are available on-line or from Bertoz Jewellers, Channel Court, Kingston and will be available at the door from 1.30pm on the day.
