MEMBER for Albany Peter Watson’s annual Seniors Christmas Concert was attended by more than 100 people keen to get into the festive spirit.

This year was the 19th concert held in town by Mr Watson and he was delighted by the response from this year’s attendees.

“I started the concerts as a way of thanking our seniors for their contribution to our community and to showcase some of our fantastic local musicians and performers,” he said.

“It’s just a great way to get so many people together for a fun and entertaining day.

“I have lost count of the number of seniors over the years who say it’s one of the few times a year that they get out and about and that it’s the highlight of their year – it makes all the hard work that our volunteers put in so worthwhile.”

Mr Watson said the junior and senior school choirs from St Joseph’s College “absolutely wowed” the audience and that AboutFACE choir was another great highlight.

He called the Albany City Wind Ensemble “a world class outfit”.

“I’m really looking forward to the milestone 20th seniors concert next year,” Mr Watson said.
