Encore! From WMTC Update

It has been a very busy year so far for Encore!. In February we had a very exciting New Members Drive. We now have 6 new members and they have settled in to the demanding but exhilarating routine of rehearsals and working up to their first performance.


In April Encore! was honoured to be asked by Wyong RSL Club to perform on ANZAC Day at both their services. Despite the cold, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would love to return next year (with our new members!).


On 13th May, we performed at Kiah Lodge, Bateau Bay and on the 23rd July we entertained the residents of Wyee Point Lifestyle Village at their Christmas In July Dinner.


Encore! is planning a Family and Friends Concert to be held in November. It is intended to be a relaxed concert, in an intimate performing space at The Grove.  We will introduce our new members and it will give them a chance to perform for a supportive audience. There will be more details when the planning is complete.


We have also started our planning for our next big show in 2017 and are already starting to get excited about that!

Showoffs in Pearl Beach is back after a 2 year break. Pim Sarti and Marijke Greenway will present their 7th joint SHOWOFFS exhibition in the Pearl Beach Community Hall over the October long weekend.  They are honoured that the exhibition will be opened by Dr. Andrew Frost on Friday 30th September at 6.30 pm.  Dr. Andrew Frost is an academic, art critic, broadcaster and curator as well as presenting TV programs for the ABC on contemporary art. The exhibition will then be open Saturday, Sunday and Monday 10 to 5 pm. with free entry.

This year the focus of the artists’ work is mostly local content – the people, the landscape and the native vegetation of Pearl Beach, although Pim also made it her mission to paint all the members of the Pearl Beach Tennis Club, whilst Marijke continues to be inspired by her love of the local trees.
