Final Cooran Acoustic Night for 2016 more than music

WHAT: Cooran Acoustic Night

WHEN: Saturday, November 19

WHERE: Cooran Memorial School of Arts

BE READY for anything as the final acoustic night for 2016 opens the doors at the Cooran Memorial School of Arts on Saturday, November 19.

This beautiful old hall is the home to what began as a simple idea - a get-together of musicians - and is now the very organic, very unique, Cooran Acoustic Night.

Here is where you can find the novice, the talented, the bizarre, the unprocessed; and the act that truly catches your senses. It is a place where you can come and witness such astonishingly different performances, so well indicative of the diverse talent, and creative among us.

All that happens on an acoustic night is managed and implemented by a team of volunteers. These few people do everything, from promoting to presenting, and enjoy working together doing what they can to contribute towards the making of a fun night.

As this year draws to a close, they will be looking for new members, a team with fresh new ideas.

A great opportunity exists for those people who want to have a go at learning the necessary skills and what is required in the production process: what it takes to bring a show to life.

A real hands-on approach means everyone works together as a team, and no one is ever exempt from learning new things. All new people are given instruction and supported with mentoring.

Required are a stage manager/co-ordinator and a sound engineer and no experience is needed.

The Cooran Acoustic Night team looks forward to seeing you at the final event of 2016. Doors open at 6.30pm, show starts 7pm so get in early to scrawl your name on the board.

Great food is available including tea, coffee and cakes. Entry is $4 (children free) and there's a lucky door prize. This is an alcohol free event.

The Cooran Memorial School of Arts annual general meeting will be held on Sunday, November 27 at 2pm at the hall in King St, Cooran. Please come if you are interested in joining the CAN team.
