Heart of St Kilda Concert

10TH ANNIVERSARY CONCERT- Helping feed people in need Tuesday 28 November 2017

Heart of St Kilda Concert with all artists and performers on stage

A huge thank you to everyone who helped to fill the house at our tenth anniversary of the Heart of St Kilda Concert at the Palais Theatre. What a night! It was an incredible evening – one of the best and biggest yet, with so many fabulous performances from an eclectic mix of artists. The audience was wonderful … enthusiastic, supportive and keen to have fun – waving hands in the air and dancing in seats to our “Love is in the Air” finale led by John Paul Young and assembled artists seemed almost mandatory! There was a great spirit in the auditorium – a sense of unity and community– it really felt like everyone was right behind Sacred Heart Mission.

The concert raised over $75,000 in much-needed funds that will supply hot and nutritious meals to people experiencing homelessness and disadvantage.

The concert wouldn’t have happened without a wonderful collection of very generous and talented people – so a BIG thank you to the following for donating their time and incredible skills to the concert:

Leo Sayer, Courtney Barnett, Jimeoin, James Reyne, Adalita, John Paul Young, Models, Emma Donovan, Tim Rogers, Claire Hooper, Dave Callan, Geraldine Hickey, Rebecca Barnard, Billy Miller & the Caravan Choir, Hailey Cramer, The Meltdown and D²Drumline.

PLUS the people behind it all: Brian Nankervis, Wal Bishop OAM, Larry Ponting, and everyone at the Palais Theatre, plus Julie Cavanagh, Pamela Reid, Jane Wing, Mick Bell, Mark Munro and Afra Mullins.
