Buddy Holly was one of the greatest pioneers of Rock and Roll music in the 50's. His career spanned only two short years before the day the music died but leaving behind one of the biggest musical legacies and a wealth of material that had a lasting impact on popular music. One Australian artist has become synonymous with the name 'BUDDY' around the world. Donning Holly's trademark horn-rimmed glasses, his ever so engaging and charismatic figure and a lilting vocal hiccup… Scott 'Buddy' Cameron returns to the role that made him famous, presenting his 10th anniversary tour as the legendary HOLLY Buddy: The Concert returns in 2014.

It all began in 2004 having answered an ad in the local newspaper hosting auditions for Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story. Beating out over 800 applicants for the lead role, Scott “Buddy” Cameron continues a legacy, so far notching up over 1000 performances as Buddy Holly, we celebrate his career thus far.

In 2014, Buddy The Concert, Cameron and his three-piece band will take you on “one heck of a Rock 'N' Roll Party,” Scott promises. “After all it's my 10th celebration as Holly so you can expect to hear all the top Hits like ‘Peggy Sue’, ‘Rave On’, ‘Oh Boy’, ‘That'll Be The Day’, ‘Everyday’, ‘Maybe Baby’, ‘Heartbeat’ and ‘Not Fade Away’ as well as Holly’s versions of hit’s from artists that helped develop Holly’s sound.”

"Scott Cameron is a joy to watch in the lead role. He completely throws himself into the part, sometimes seeming to channel Buddy Holly himself"The Courier Mail

Damien Ryan’s vision for Henry V is inspired by a true story – in 1941, for 57 consecutive nights during the London Blitz, a group of boys trapped in a bunker rehearsed a new play each week and would then perform it for others in the shelter. This production explores the rite of passage that violence and conflict offer as a threshold to manhood. It confronts the fact that – for all the horrors of war – true courage and brotherhood can inspire remarkable achievements.
In this gripping new Henry V, a talented young cast tell the story of a king who unites his ‘band of brothers’ and a nation with his eloquent words and ideas, his triumphs and humanity. When the battle is won, this production will leave you feeling uplifted and exhilarated with the belief that the impossible is possible.

Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre joins with Wangaratta Arts Council Inc. to present intimate twilight concerts which we call Steinway on Stage because pianists play the Rural City of Wangaratta's magnificent grand piano with the audience seated on the stage of the Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre's Alpine MDF Theatre.

Glenise Williams has played piano for the past 30 years, after not having access to an instrument for many years. For the past twenty years she has played regularly with two friends she met while teaching in Thoona. Jenny O'Brien and Wendy Cameron both play flute and will join Glenise for this recital.

Since the French love the flute and have composed many works for this instrument, the program will include works by Delibes, Faure and Gaubert. The trio will also play two contemporary works by a German and a Spanish composer. Glenise will play two pieces for solo piano by the composer Ludovico Einaudi who has produced lots of music for film.

Glenise is currently also the accompanist for Ostinato, Wangaratta's Community Choir.

For the Diary - during Seniors Festival in October, there will be two more Steinway on Stage recitals as follows - Wednesday 8 October - Amy Faithfull and friends Wednesday 15 October - Darcie Pegler and Tim Wong

Kate Miller-Heidke has the critics raving with her fourth studio album, and first independent release, O Vertigo! The album playfully redefines the boundaries of her unique style of indie pop whilst pushing her voice into uncharted vocal terrain. Made possible by the support of Kate's army of loyal fans who funded the album through Pledge Music in a record-breaking 3 days, the album was released in March and garnered rave reviews along with a top 5 debut on the ARIA album chart. Kate launched the album to her fans in capital cities with a sold-out series of intimate acoustic shows, featuring long-term collaborator Keir Nuttall on guitar and musical freak-genius John Rodgers on violin and piano. The trio will now embark on an extensive tour of regional centres to premiere songs from O Vertigo!, along with old favourites. 'I feel like live performance has always been at the heart of what I do', says Kate. 'Often the test of a good song is if it works in a very stripped-back, acoustic mode. I love reinventing the songs in this way. I'm looking forward to bringing the new songs, as well as a mixture of older stuff, out far beyond the capital cities, especially places I've never played before.' As well as releasing O Vertigo! and her two Australian tours, Kate has just returned from playing sold out shows in London and The Great Escape in the UK. She is about to perform at the Sydney Opera House for the Vivid LIVE festival. After her August tour of Australia she will be returning to the UK for her first headline tour of the country to support the European release of O Vertigo! From there she will be heading straight to the USA to perform for the prestigious New York Metropolitan Opera in their production of 'The Death Of Klinghoffer'. This is your last chance to see Kate Miller-Heidke tour this year before she disappears overseas. Don't miss one of Australia's most talented and exciting live performers. UK singer-songwriter Ryan Keen will be joining Kate. With the warm, breathy voice, technically virtuosic guitar playing style and armful of confessional and/or observational material, Ryan Keen is about to become your favourite new bard.

This exhibition showcases artworks from Mind Australia art groups within the North East Victorian Region. The Art group started several years ago to give the participants an opportunity to express their feelings through art. The group also enabled the participants to sit and chat, slowly building their confidence in their creative talents and social connections. Some the participants have exhibited in the past and enjoy sharing their creations with others. This exhibition provides a platform for new and emerging artists to show the power of their artistic expression and share their stories.
