The Painted Lady - Manning Valley Choral Society live on stage at the MEC!
Highlighting the music and songs of the 1950’s, well known favourites such as Volare!, Rock Around the Clock, Mr Sandman, Dream Lover, It's So Easy and That's Amore! will take you back to the dawn of the modern music industry, of Rock and Roll, of Pop, of Doo Wop and Rockabilly. With talented local piano virtuoso Cameron Waugh providing accompaniment, it’s a rollicking, engaging, humorous, toe tapping show, designed to lift your spirits, to feel the rhythm of the 50’s, and to experience the musical and melodramatic fun of ‘The Painted Lady’.
Founded in 1985, the MVCS (Manning Valley Choral Society) has been entertaining the Manning Valley with a smorgasbord of musical works, genres and titles. The love of singing, the release of positive endorphins, and the joy of shared musical experience, has been the catalyst for the longevity of the group and its desire to be accessible to so many members of the community.
Commencing in February, 2023, the MVCS has been busily rehearsing ‘The Painted Lady’, an original work, and the brainchild of local theatrical and vocal artiste, Geraldine Mullin. Featuring musical themes, collaborators, composers and vocalists; a creative meld of personalities, problems, romantic delusions and trysts; and murder, mystery and mayhem thrown in for good measure, ‘The Painted Lady’ will have you engaged from beginning to end!
