Happy Birthday Stella
In 2015 Cairns orchestral music icon Stella Massey stepped down from her role as director of the Cairns Concert Orchestra, a position she had held for nearly 30 years.
Roll forward six years and Stella is ready to celebrate big as she marks turning 90 this Sunday.
A traditionalist at heart, many of her pervious students and colleagues received an invitation in the mail, yes ‘snail-mail’. No snappy social media shout-out, the good old fashioned letter invite.
Described as a superb organiser, I guess Stella still feels the personal touch of a posted invite is still the best way.
Friends and previous students are reminded and invited to drop in on Stella this Sunday to say hi and help her celebrate.
The doors of her home will be open between 2pm and 5pm on Sunday for those wishing to help her celebrate this milestone.
From the staff here at Cairns Local News, we salute your contribution to the Cairns music scene and wish you a very joyful day filled with laughter, family and good friends, and great memories.
