A unique concert showcasing some of Australia’s finest live music and comedy performers, Sacred Heart Mission’s Heart of St Kilda Concert is back again with another exciting line-up. This much loved and anticipated annual community event will be held as usual at the fabulous Palais Theatre on Wednesday 23 October 2019.
For 12 years, the Heart of St Kilda concert has been hosted and supported by wonderful master of ceremonies, Brian Nankervis – a crowd favourite and long-term supporter of the Mission.
This year’s thrilling line-up features: Kitty Flanagan, Carl Barron, Joe Camilleri, Dan Sultan, Rhonda Burchmore, The Chantoozies, Rob Snarski, Steph Tisdell, Pierce Brothers, Kiki Courtidis, The Meltdown, The Teskey Brothers, Billy Miller, Rebecca Barnard and The Caravan Choir – all who are generously donating their time in support of the Mission.
Returning for his tenth year, Australian music legend Joe Camilleri says he believes in a fair, inclusive and compassionate community. “To put it simply; I keep coming back because of everything the Mission does for our community,” says Joe.
“There are many people around here (St Kilda) that need support – they don’t want the world, they just want a helping hand, and the Mission does a fantastic job at giving them that.”
The Heart of St Kilda Concert is an important event on the Mission’s fundraising calendar. It provides a unique and exciting opportunity to engage with the community and to help raise much-needed funds in support of the Mission’s Dining Hall and Meals Program, which serves up 400 free meals every day of the year to people experiencing homelessness and social isolation.
For over 35 years, Sacred Heart Mission’s Dining Hall has been at the heart of the organisation – connecting those who are the most vulnerable in our community with a range of services which support them to live stable and fulfilling lives.
The Mission serves over 160,000 meals each year via its Dining Hall in Grey Street, St Kilda. Proceeds from this year’s concert will continue this inspirational work supporting people experiencing homelessness, social isolation and disadvantage in Melbourne.
