Young Vocalists Perform At Dingo Beach

Young and aspiring musicians performed in front of 200 people at the Dingo Beach Hotel over the weekend as part of the Music Evolution Project’s Young Vocalists showcase.

From midday through to 9pm on Saturday evening dozens of young performers exhibited their well-rehearsed songs, many taking to the stage for the first time in their lives.

Mentor and teacher, Lisa Stanley, said she was very proud.

“I was so so proud of their efforts,” she said,

“They were all so good and so professional, it was a huge success and Dingo Beach Hotel have already invited us back!”

The Music Evolution Project is dedicated to helping young people express themselves through music, giving those that might not otherwise have access, the opportunity to learn and perform.

At its core, the project aims to help improve mental health through music.

Over 30 performers took to the stage on the day.

These included Meg McKeon, Destiny, Ella Kelly, Dominik James, Amber Hinschen, Chloe Kaddatz, The Microns and Tanika Lulham.

The two pianists were Maddy Hughes and Fitia Steel-Gaby.

The next Music Evolution Project performance will take place on Saturday, March 25 at the Dingo Beach Hotel.
