Classics For Cancer


About the Event

An intimate classical chamber music concert to raise funds for local cancer charities based in Lismore who provide targeted support for local cancer patients. Music will include ensembles made up of local musicians who are freely donating their time and instruments to put a mixed chamber program including Piano, Flute with String quartet, Wind Sextet, Brass with Strings, Double Oboe Concerto, Piano and a combination of Soprano, Alto and Tenor singers. Program will include composers such as Vivaldi, Puccini, Bach etc. Event also includes a VOLUNTARY fundraising raffle.

Afternoon tea is available. However, since we are trying to raise funds - we are making it a little special to suit the event and adding a fee. Please bring some cash with you!



This is the second year for this concert. In 2016, nearly $8000 was raised for distribution to the 2 supporting Charities. Please come along and help us raise more in 2017.
