We have tickets now for the Rotary Gala Concert which is scheduled at CC Leagues Club  Saturday 21 October. It's allocated seating so if you want the good seats, get in early. Phone 4324 7477 for group bookings and individual tickets.

Our Central Coast Youth Orchestra have been preparing for a joint project with CC Grammar School and Symphony Central Coast which will be presented at "Hollywood Rhapsody" on 17th September - the exciting world premiere of a work by Christopher Sainsbury entitled "Spirit Land", will be accompanied by a video shot entirely on the Central Coast by the talented Bob Doyle.

If you missed the Australian Premiere of Christopher Tin's award winning "Calling All Dawns", you might want to come to our Premier Ensembles Concert on 22 September to hear the Choirs reprise the music, along with the CC Youth Orchestra.

So much to do, so much to see and hear.  Never a dull moment on the Central Coast!
