Gabrielle Canny



Who would expect a French girl from Reunion Island to belt out blues and jazz numbers in English like she’s done it all her life?  Well, the reason is because in fact she has!  And that’s just the start of it.  She’s equally comfortable singing Latin songs in Spanish and Portuguese, or soprano classics in Italian.  Her vocals have led her to be compared during the one performance to Shakira, Mariah, Beyonce, Whitney and Tina Turner.

Gabrielle has spent many years performing live for appreciative audiences, both as part of a band and solo with her keyboard or backing music.  She grew up performing in New Caledonia, and then in later years throughout the Pacific.  She is a recent arrival to Perth and happy to present her culture and talent whenever she has the opportunity. Gabrielle will be joined for part of her performance by Muriel & Carole of the 'Kafrinettes'.

The Chidlow French Choir


The Chidlow French Choir and Friends is a fun-filled group of amateur singers, most of whom don't actually speak French! The community choral group, which sings a mixture of traditional and modern French songs from folk to pop, formed two years ago as a fundraising activity to help renovate the aging Chidlow Town Hall. Members practised for about six weeks in each of the previous two years while conductor Christiane Gattet was visiting her Australian family from Lyon. This culminated in annual concerts for members' family and friends. The choir is delighted to perform for the general public for the first time, in the Fete de la Musique under the direction of Christiane's granddaughters. Their performance includes several vocal and accordion solos.

Heart Of Tango - Barry Arnold & Marja Fayomi



 

To dance tango is to breathe into the spaces of movement where passion is ignited to create mutual expression. It is...the physical manifestation of soul in conversation. Inaugural Australian Tango Champion Barry Arnold and his dance-partner and student Marja Fayomi established Heart of Tango in 2015 after recognising a shared vision to establish a vibrant, creative and healing tango community.
To watch Barry and Marja dance is not to watch perfection of a dance that has been mastered...it is to see the language of authentic connection and the possibilities of what that can create. Be transported, be inspired, and be a part of Heart Of Tango...

Performance and Free Workshop!
