People come for music
MUSIC lovers flowed into Mossvale Park at Berrys Creek on Sunday, carrying with them deck chairs, picnic rugs, flutes, French horns and cymbals.
It was Music for the People, an outdoor concert featuring the Victorian Concert Orchestra, Wonthaggi Citizens Band, South Gippsland Concert Band and South Gippsland Shire Brass Band.
Children played with hoola hoops, juggling batons and stilts in the Dreaming Space while babies crawled around rugs in the shade of Mossvale Park’s historic trees.
St Peter’s Anglican Ladies’ Guild provided lunch for the visiting ensemble, as it does every year.
Vocalists Steven Coutts and Veronica Iredale sang with great skill, accompanied by the Victorian Concert Orchestra, for the appreciative listeners.
The event was funded by the South Gippsland Shire Council and put together by volunteer organisers and performers.
