Music is the best medicine

Music is good for the soul – it sooths, it excites, and it creates a feeling of well-being.

This is your opportunity to get a dose of goodness.

Join the Granite Belt Choir and friends at the Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery on Sunday 26 June at 2.00pm for the annual Joan Smith Tribute Recital.

Joan was a respected music teacher in the district and instigated the “Music in the Gallery” concerts that have become such a regular and delightful experience for the Granite Belt community and beyond.

The concept continues and, as a tribute to Joan, the Gallery traditionally invites the Granite Belt Choir and friends to participate in an annual recital.

The Choir will be joined by its offshoots, the Granite Belt Junior Choir and Contempo, and is pleased to add that the Occasional Players will again be joining them in a programme that has an entertaining mix of older, contemporary and familiar tunes.

This will be the last performance by the Choir in the wonderful acoustics of the Gallery for this year in view of the imminent renovations to the space.

Tickets are $15 each and are available through Humanitix at or by ringing the Gallery on 4681 1874.

They can also be purchased at the gallery information desk during opening hours.

If you have not already seen it, you will also have the opportunity to view the current exhibition of Pacific region art, on loan from GOMA.
