HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL: Georgia Henning and Clara Rudd are ready for their performance on Sunday.

TALENTED singers from across the area will descend on Jimbour House this Sunday afternoon for a performance not to be missed.

The Local Artists Concert will feature four musical talents from in and around Dalby that will delight the crowd.

Two of those performers will be school captain at Dalby State High School, Clara Rudd, along with her equally talented classmate, clarinet player, Georgia Henning.

Both students will perform as soloists during the event and will present a variety of repertoire and this will constitute part of their assessment for the subject, Music Extension.

The pair are both outstanding performers and have a wealth of experience.

Clara has recently returned from touring the Baltic States with the prestigious Australian choir, Gondwana Voices.

Both girls also had leading roles in the school's musical, Mary Poppins, back in May.

Dalby State High School music teacher Helen Gleeson believes that Clara and Georgia would be some of the top music students in the region based on their results to date.

"It would be great for the community to support the girls at this final performance, nothing would please me more than to see the Jimbour House drawing room at capacity,” Ms Gleeson said.

"Clara and Georgia have worked tirelessly over a number of years to reach this standard and deserve recognition.”

Piano and cello duets by Myfanwy Schenk and Danielle Skerman will also feature in the program.

Mrs Schenk will be heavily involved throughout the afternoon, and is looking to the occasion.

"I love playing at Jimbour House, it's such a special place and it's a real privilege to perform there,” Mrs Schenk said.

"The girls will be performing the first half, and I'll be joining them on stage which will be a lot of fun.

"Danielle will be playing the cello during the second half of the show, and I'll also be on stage playing the piano.

"The show will feature a wide variety of music, from classical Mozart to modern day musical songs.”

Tickets are $20 for members, $25 for non-members, $20 for concessions and $10 for school-aged children.

Tickets can be purchased from FSD Pharmacy, Dalby, online at www.dalbyartscouncil .com.au or at the door.

The event begins at 2pm and a complimentary afternoon tea will be provided during intermission.
