Top Of The Popera!

Top of the Popera!
Our balmy spring evenings are the perfect time to enjoy activities outdoors and Popera on the Hill promises a unique experience you won’t forget!

Four incredibly talented performers will grace the stage at Picnic Hill on Saturday 7 September, to take you on a spectacular journey of music ranging from Broadway hits and classics, to soaring arias, to contemporary Popera hits such as ‘You Raise Me Up’ and ‘The Prayer’.

Renowned singers, Daniel Mallari (tenor), along with Bernadette Fisher (soprano), Lucy McIntosh (mezzo soprano) and Patrick Oxley (baritone) will bring their talented voices to the evening event.

While opera fans will definitely be excited, the event is also perfect for anyone wanting a new musical experience. Social enterprise and program coordinator for Redcliffe Area Youth Space, Ashlee Hall, is excited to present the new event.

“This event is likely to appeal to the older generations, fans of opera music, and anyone who is musically inclined wanting to get out and experience something new in Redcliffe,” Ashlee said.

“It’s for anyone that enjoys events with a relaxed atmosphere and music – everyone is welcome!”

Setting it apart is the style of catering at Popera on the Hill.

“We are not using food trucks [or] vendors, we have partnered with Connections Catering, a local small business to create the perfect picnic basket dinners with a side of Sirromet Wines,” Ashlee said.

“Connections Catering picnic baskets can be purchased along with your ticket.”

Tickets without picnic baskets are also available, with a select menu of light bites and wine available for purchase on the night.

Even if the opera is not your thing, the funds raised at the event are going to a very worthy cause.

“Popera on the Hill is an initiative of the Redcliffe Area Youth Space [and] we aim to use all funds raised at Popera to support young people within the Moreton Bay Region and surroundings,” Ashlee said.
