TICKETS are now on sale for Albany vocal ensemble Bird on a Wire’s latest concert, Up to the Mountain.

The group will perform on May 23 and 24 at the Museum of the Great Southern’s Co-Op Building, and musical director Teresa Hughes says the show will feature an eclectic repertoire of music.

“We’ve got jazz, gospel, sacred music and contemporary,” she said.

“We are working on a Queen number at the moment.”

The all-adult performance choir plays for their fans at least four times a year at concerts and charity events, with their latest calendar update including the Denmark Festival of Voice set for June.

Ms Hughes says Up To The Mountain will feature arrangements in both acapella and piano accompaniment settings.

“We have a rich sound,” she said.

“We’ve got a varied repertoire and the singers just have fun.

“We are a very joyful group.”

Tickets are just $20 and can be purchased at Uptown Music.

The ticket proceeds will go towards a Youth Scholarship Fund Ms Hughes is starting, which she says will help young, up-and-coming singers pursue vocal training.
