Maleny Arts Council to host final concert for year

MIKELANGELO is bringing his singing voice to Maleny Community Centre this Sunday, October 21, at 2pm.

His show will highlight the popular songs of Nick Cave, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen.

The Maleny Arts Council has secured the Australian and international performer for the final concert of the 2018 season. Mikelangelo's celebration of the three great poets of popular music has created a great response from audiences and critics throughout Australia and the Edinburgh Festival 2017.

The performance is from 2pm which enables everyone to come along and not worry about night driving.

After the show, there will be the usual meet and greet, with sandwiches and a drink on the deck. Mikelangelo's song list will include Cave's Into My Arms, Cohen's Hallelujah and Waits' Goin' Out West, as well as some original songs.

The cost is $25 for Arts Council members, $15 for students and $30 for non-members.
