Our ninth year, concert goers were treated to an exceptional programme of opera and light classical items.

Attendance records were broken yet again this year with the event "Sold Out" well prior to the day. On the day, the weather was mild and a slight cool breeze made the whole event an enjoyable occasion for our many patrons.

Thank you to you our wonderful patrons. Because of your tremendous support, you will have assisted us to raise sufficient funds to increase our list of recipients.

This year proceeds raised are being donated to

Rotary Polio Eradication Program

( www.endpolionow.org )

and other Rotary Projects and Charities.

The Rotary Club of Woy Woy looks forward to welcoming you back to our TENTH Opera in the Arboretum in March, 2015.

Our sincere thanks go to our many sponsors and especially to our


for their continued and much valued support.

What patrons have had to say about Opera 2014 ...

♦♦  "This was the fifth Arboretum we have been to - yes I am on the mailing list. We went with two friends from Sydney - one had been to the Arboretum two years ago and the other was a bit sceptical of our enthusiasm - she is a subscriber to Sydney Symphony as well. It was a totally great day. How fabulously lucky you/we were with the weather - yes we were worried as you were no doubt.

However, congratulations to your organising team - and a hearty thank you for your efforts. The whole afternoon ran smoothly - from the parking onwards. The concert itself was a total joy - and how lucky we were to hear José Carbó who was truly tremendous. yes the other singers were great too but José totally blew us away. The orchestra were outstanding as well - I don't know if it is the change of director or change of students but we two 5-timers commented on their standard this year.

Our two friends were totally sold on the whole day. Including the sceptic. None of us could stop commenting on the half hour trip home on how great a day we had.

Thank you again - and congratulations again. David Adams Koolewong NSW "

♦♦  "I attended my first Pearl Beach Opera at the Arboretum on Saturday and just wanted to congratulate you on a very enjoyable afternoon well organised, excellent singers (whose voices were well suited to one another), great venue, well-behaved audience, and even perfect weather. Well done, and see you next year." I.H.

♦♦  "What a thoroughly enjoyable experience was our first Opera in the Arboretum last weekend! A highlight of our weekend Gang Gathering (the Gang consisting of 5 school friends from the 1960's, and their loved ones!)

We enjoyed it so much we returned to walk in the Arboretum the next day, and had photos taken re-enacting (minus the splendid music and voices...) some of the highlights!

You did a great job organising, and the performances were excellent. Many many thanks! Hopefully we can get there another year." Julia G.
