RECITALS 2019

 

RECITAL SUBSCRIPTIONS MADE EASY

The RECITAL SERIES 2019 has expanded to four recitals, with three at St John’s Flinders and one at St Mark’s Balnarring.  A $160 subscription will save you $25 and this year the system has been streamlined to make it more user friendly:

  • There will be no subscriber tickets.  Your name will simply be listed at the door.
  • If you are unable to attend a recital, your nominated guest will be admitted in your name.

There will be two performances of Handel’s MESSIAH in October

You are encouraged to subscribe, as this provides us with a solid core of bookings throughout the series.   Please encourage friends to join you in subscribing and therefore help build up our support base.  Subscription is easy – just click on the RECITALS button and select your options. 

We are so appreciative of the support of Bendigo Bank this year.  Its Balnarring Community Bank branch in the past ten years has given over one million dollars to local community development, an amazing generosity.

Please contact John Barren on 5989 8620 with any enquiries about RECITAL SERIES 2019.
