A civic celebration of the 75th Anniversary of VP Day at Auburn Uniting Church. 2pm on Sunday 16 August 2020. The Friends have received a grant from the Veterans Branch of the Victorian Department of Premier and Cabinet to support this unique event. Whether you are a veteran, a descendant or a migrant who arrived in the period 1935 - 1950, this is an opportunity to celebrate the end of the War, and the subsequent boom. Music of the era will be provided by organ, brass and choir, with opportunities for audience participation. More details to follow, but please keep the date free.
From time to time we'll list other events which might be of interest to the Friends and their friends. Check with the organiser as to whether they will proceed during the current emergency.
The auditorium at Auburn Uniting Church is available for recitals, concerts, lectures and presentations. Full details are on the Congregation's website. The auditorium, seating 400, is in the amphitheatre style, with a sloping floor and excellent acoustics and sightlines. The choir and dais accommodate a choir of up to 60, and a small orchestra. Keyboard instruments provided are the original Fincham organ, of three manuals and pedals, and a Kawai KG-1 grand piano. Both are regularly maintained and tuned to concert pitch (A = 440). Another piano, a Rönisch upright grand, is located in the rehearsal/warmup room. Enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org .
