A multicultural concert featuring a three-hour cosmopolitan dance was held at the Queens Park Theatre for the opening of Seniors Week, with a special Remembrance Service held on stage by navy cadets. The concert on Saturday consisted of more than eight cultures performing on stage. The audience was taken on a visual tour to India, New Zealand, Indonesia, America, China, the Philippines, Thailand and back to Geraldton through an array of song and dance performances. TS Morrow Australian Naval Cadets held a Remembrance Day service on stage, complete with the raising and lowering of the Australian flag at the beginning of the program. The Bluff Point Primary School dance and singing groups joined the cadets during the national anthem and the Geraldton Scout Group watched over the City of Greater Geraldton’s cultural flag collection that hung at the entrance as the audience entered. The Midwest Community Fusion Belly Dancers, All Things Dance, Karloo Rockers performed, finishing up with songs by musician Carly Markham. Mid West Multicultural Association secretary Yvonne Lovedee said volunteers practised for hours to share their cultural heritage and love of music and dance with the community. “The multicultural concert is an opportunity to come together and celebrate the richness of our cultural diversity, the inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone who calls the Mid West home,” she said.
