Acoustic night: And now here’!

Awesome: SheWolf performed for Hume's youth in 2015.

Talented young people will shortly have a new outlet in which to express themselves in front of a live audience.

Hume City Council shall again host an acoustic night, so that people aged from 12 to 24 years can sing, dance, play music or perform spoken word.

The event will take place from 6pm until 9pm on Friday 8 July 2016, at Youth Central on Pearcedale Parade in Broadmeadows.

Hume Mayor, Councillor Helen Patsikatheodorou, called on every young person in Hume to consider whether they would like to perform an act.

“This is a terrific night because it showcases many different types of performance,” Cr Patsikatheodorou said.

“It’s a great way for people to find out what it is like to perform on stage and under the bright lights.

“I’m sure many of the participants will build great confidence as they learn how to attract reactions from the audience.

“While it always helps to watch your favourite entertainers, real experience assists people to improve the way they perform when that curtain goes up.

“There are very few chances for talented people to hone their craft on stage, so I encourage everyone to design their act and start to rehearse.

“The night is certain to be full of variety, and I hope we’ll have a number of people who want to do stand-up comedy, perhaps inspired by the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

“We know many Hume residents play instruments like the guitar or the trumpet, and Council’s Acoustic Night offers an opportunity for people to share their love of music.”

All attendees will receive a free dinner, and have the chance to win some fantastic door prizes.

Hume City Council shall also install a photo booth at the venue, so that people can take digital pictures and keep a memory of the night.

Cr Patsikatheodorou said open microphone events often opened doors.

“You just never know who could be in the audience when you step up to the microphone,” she said.

“People may meet others whom they would like to jam with, and this can lead to more opportunities to perform on stage.

“It’s a chance to show something of yourself to the world, and the audiences at Hume’s youth events are always very encouraging and appreciative.

“While it can be nerve-racking to stand up in front of others, people who perform regularly often find that it gets easier over time, so I call on our talented youth to give it a go.”

Anyone who would like to present an act at Hume City Council’s Acoustic Night should register before 30 June 2016 via 03 9205 2556 or through the Facebook page humeyouthservices.

The event is fully-supervised, and completely smoke, alcohol and drug free.

Hume City Council coordinates a range of activities for youth throughout the year, such as music concerts, drop-in sessions and school holiday programs.
