Set in the atmospheric garden surrounds of Munro Martin Parklands, the ‘Getting in the mood for Christmas’ concert program features performances from Cairns Choral Society choir and ensembles, Cairns Brass, Cairns Young Voices as well as dance troupes from FNQ Dance Academy and Turning Pointe Dance Studios.

Headlining the event is special guest and supremo tenor, Adrian Strooper, who has recently returned to his hometown of Cairns after spending the past ten years as a resident soloist at the Komische Opera in Berlin, Germany.

Event organiser Joanne Wright said the Cairns Choral Society was thrilled to take the lead role in making this year’s Christmas-themed concert one to remember.

“After what has been a challenging year, in which live performance has been limited and events cancelled, it is a joy to have the stage once again,” Ms Wright said.

Proudly presented by the Cairns Regional Council and Cairns Choral Society, this one-night-only event is certain to get the city’s feet tapping, and faces smiling in the lead-up to Christmas.

Concert goers are invited to bring along a picnic, low set chair or rug and take advantage of the onsite food vendors and licensed bar.

Tickets are available from

Tickets are $28 per adult, $23 per child and $80 for a family of two adults and two children. Groups of 10 plus can be purchased at $25 per person.
