Rocking in the Third Age

Narrabeen Baptist Church came alive with the sound of

the recently formed 3rd Age Rock Orchestra last month,

with more than 200 people singing and dancing in the aisles

to rock ’n’ roll music from the 1950s to present day at their

first official performance. The RO has over 30 musicians

and singers and has at its core a group of 11 acoustic

guitarists. Add drums, percussion, bass guitars, lead guitars,

keyboard, flute, recorder, bassoon, trombone and half a

dozen singers and it’s an impressive line-up. All performers

are amateurs and members of the University of the 3rd Age.

The set list included music from Chuck Berry, Little Richard,

Elvis Presley, The Bee Gees, The Beatles, Neil Diamond, the

Eagles, R.E.M., the Travelling Wilburys… even Robbie Williams

and AC/DC! Want to get involved? The Rock Orchestra has

vacancies for a saxophonist, trumpeter, oboe player and cello

player. More info rockorchestra42@gmail.com
