'Back to the 80s' also brings together Play It Forward’s extended community including THECHO!R, Adam Przewlocki and our choirs including Voices of Casey, Latrobe Valley Community Choir, Choir of Opportunity, All Together Choir, Voices of the Alfred and Western Health Singers.

“All our choirs have been hard at work rehearsing these wonderful songs .... we can't wait for the concert. It will be such a buzz and the most amazing vibe. I want to get the whole world singing I think!” Jonathon exclaims.

'Back to the 80s' will be followed at 7pm with "The Judy Garland Song Book". This very special concert version of Skunkworks Productions' recent sellout show. A fundraiser for Play It Forward, it stars our Patron, the incredible Liane Keegan singing Judy Garland's greatest hits. Liane will also be accompanied by the Skunkworks Band conducted by Phillipa Edwards.

Jonathon adds "It’s an honour to have such wonderful support from our fabulous guest artists, our singers, supporters ... and of course from our audiences. I’m so excited and inspired for the future! There are many more inclusive arts projects, programs and events we are planning for all Australians. Come and be part of it!!!”

Proceeds from both concerts will support Play It Forward providing a unique range of tailored inclusive arts programs, events and projects for all Australians.
