This winter holiday, nothing busts boredom as easily as good music and some energetic dancing. Here are some music and merriment events in Mt Gravatt for those days when the whole family just wants to go out and have fun, fun, fun!
Australian Girls Choir Open Days
With over 5,000 choristers in training across the country, the Australian Girls Choir (AGC) is Australia’s “leading performing arts organisation for girls” at present. This winter break, they are arriving in Mount Gravatt to hold Open Days on the 17th and 24th of June from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. AGC’s Mount Gravatt rehearsal venue will be at Mt Gravatt High School, which is located at Creighton Street. Attendees may enter off Logan Road.
For 30 years, AGC has consistently “encouraged, challenged, and inspired girls” in the field of singing and dancing. If your little ladies are in Prep to Grade 2, AGC invites them to the Open Days so they can “try the fun and inclusive junior@agc program.” Attendance is absolutely free though bookings are essential. Contact AGC Brisbane via phone (07 3256 0207) or toll-free hotline (1 800 338 142).
