Lord Mayor’s Seniors Cabaret


The Lord Mayor's Seniors Cabaret is a free development program that provides Brisbane seniors the opportunity to learn from the best in the biz and develop their creative and artistic talents in a non-competitive, support environment. If you can dream it, you can do it!

In 2021, participants were given the opportunity to work alongside top industry professional mentors in a masterclass environment which was guided by a series of learning developmental classes to encourage participants to perform successfully.

The focus of the sessions include:

  • overcoming stage fright
  • stage craft
  • vocal technique
  • group singing
  • song and dance
  • a healthy voice
  • less is more
  • how to hit those high notes
  • ukulele and voice.

After completing the masterclasses, some participants had the opportunity to perform in a showcase concert throughout August and September and set the stage alight with their singing, dancing and instrumental skills in various venues across Brisbane.
