Following on from an extremely successful recruitment drive, you would have seen in our earlier news items that the Headliners has now grown from 30 members to its largest-ever membership of 40 Headliners.  Wow, what a fabulous year we have had.

On top of that, in the last few months, the Headliners have been busy with differing events:
  • At our August 21st rehearsal we have the privilege of having Mia from Love Notes Quartet visit and coach us for the evening. 
  • To top the evening off, Ballina Shire’s Mayor, Sharon Caldwalder, also made a visit, and we were able to say thank you for our new risers following a successful submission by Sharon for funding for the new risers after ours were damaged beyond repair in the 2020 floods.
  • August 25th the ‘3 Nice Girls’ quartet got their first public gig at Rous Unplugged.  There were a few of the Headliners there to support them, and they, too, got a chance to get in on the act.
  • September 3rd the ‘3 Nice Girls’ had success at this year’s Lismore Eisteddfod by taking out first place! They are pretty awesome, even if we say so ourselves!  Well done, ladies, and well deserved.
  • October 15 – Grandma’s 98th birthday event on the Tweed River.  How lucky are we, not only did we get to sing for one of our member's Grandma’s 98th birthday, we also got to join the party, on a boat on the Tweed River on a most glorious morning. Trying to sing on a two-levelled boat with the breeze blowing and people everywhere, we love a good challenge, and what a success it was.
