Brand New Musical Production

Original APC accompanist Bev Kennedy sent this message about "Listen to my Heart".
"Dear Cabaret Lovers,
We are so proud to announce the first ever STATEMENT PRODUCTION. We've put together a stellar cast of five of out top musical theatre performers for the Australian premiere of David Friedman's Listen to My Heart. It's going to be such a treat to see and hear these amazing voices together on the intimate Statement stage. And we're really privileged to have the talents of Neil Gooding as director and Bev Kennedy as Musical Director for the show.
The show is a concert of American composer David Friedman's wonderful songs.
This is the first of a series of mini musicals we plan to present at Statement. There are only six performances so please make sure you book early. Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
Hope to see you there!
Alistair and the TAA team"

Visit to Australia by Gemma Sisia (School of St Jude)

Gemma Sisia is coming back to Australia in 2 weeks for all the "Friends of St Jude's" functions around the country.

Below are the details of the functions in Sydney (there are also functions in other centres - details can be forwarded upon request). Apparently seats are going quickly so if you're interested book now!

Gemma will be promoting the book about St Jude's as the school will directly profit from each copy sold and there will be a free DVD with each book so that you can take it home for family and friends to see.

"Friends of St Jude's" Events - Raising Awareness and Money!
The aim of these functions is to:
1. Bring current and new supporters together in a friendly atmosphere.
2. Educate people who have never heard of this school, by showing a short visual presentation. Gemma will be giving updates and information about future projects for both old and prospective supporters.
3. Launch the book "St Jude's" and sell copies. Sales of the book at these events will benefit the school directly. People who buy a book during the function will be given a free DVD about the school as well. So whilst everyone's having fun at the event, the school will also be benefiting; which is a true win-win situation.

Friday 20th April at 2pm
Lorraine Smith Auditorium, Centenary Centre
Ravenswood School for Girls
Entry via Henry Street, Gordon
Adults $10, Concession $5 - payable at the door. Includes light refreshments

Tuesday 24th April at 6.30pm
St Vincent's College
1 Challis Avenue, Potts Point
Adults $10, Concession $5 - payable at the door. Includes light refreshments.

Bookings for both functions through Lindfield Bookshops (02) 9416 4201 or

Message from Jonathon

"Dear APC members,

I have spoken with Matt and Tracey since my last email and your meeting last Monday - and I am delighted that you are banding together to continue singing together!

I know that there are many things to be discussed and sorted out - but my greatest wish was that you would see past this hurdle - you have worked long and hard to achieve a great ensemble and there is no reason why this cannot be the status quo for the future also.

I wish you all a wonderful Easter (I might see some of you at the Tenor Australis gig on Easter Sunday) and look forward to seeing you on Saturday April 14th - time and place TBC.

Love to you all -

Jonathon xo"

Jonathon & CoHKs TV appearances

Okay, so it looks like Jonathon's debut on Spicks & Specks isn't this Wednesday (4th April), but stayed tuned and we'll post as soon as the date's confirmed.

However, Jonathon and some of the Choir of Hard Knocks members will be on 9am with Kim and David on Channel 10 this Friday (6th April).

And don't forget the Tenor Australis gig this coming Sunday (8th April) at Canterbury Bankstown Leagues Club at Belmore. Initial enquiries with the club indicate it's free entry to the show - but don't hold me to that one!
