Group calls for singers to join in the chorus

THE Blackbutt Singers will perform for the first time this year at the South Burnett Australia Day awards in Blackbutt on Friday night.

The group has returned from holidays early to prepare two songs for the community.

The performance on Friday night is the first of many big events for the group who is looking for more singers to join them on stage this year.

Rose Thomas has been a soprano in the group of 30 singers for 10 years and said there was a place for everyone

"I think people start off like I did, a little bit lonely looking for something to do,” she said.

"Fortunately I had a bit of a voice which helps but we invite everyone because we can help them find their voice.

"When you go into places and you have got a lot of people you sometimes get cliques but there is nothing like that and it is wonderful.

"We are inviting everyone to become new members and we are especially looking for men.”

Throughout the year the group will entertain nursing home residents across the South Burnett and channel the Bee Gees for their annual performance at the Big Morning Tea fundraiser.

"We have a great following and get great support and we try and do things that are Blackbutt orientated to show our name,” she said.

The Blackbutt Singers rehearse on Tuesday's at the Yarraman Hall from 9.30am-12pm.
