Local law firm Slater and Gordon is supporting the first ever Opera by the Ocean festival this weekend where some of Australia’s finest opera singers will be performing in idyllic settings from Sawtell to Sapphire Beach.
Slater & Gordon senior family lawyer Heather McKinnon said Slater & Gordon’s Coffs Harbour office was thrilled to be supporting such an exciting and unique event.
“It is important that we support events like this to give local residents the opportunity to experience something really special,” Ms McKinnon said.
“Opera by the Ocean is an exciting event that is sure to inspire and strengthen our local arts community – it could even lead to a new generation of Coffs Harbour opera singers!
“Giving back to communities goes to the heart of what we do as individuals and as a firm, and our goal is to have a positive impact in the regions in which we operate.”
Ms McKinnon said some of the exciting singers performing at the event included:
- Sally-Anne Russell – principal mezzo soprano and regular performer with Opera Australia
- Samantha Cobcroft – soprano who has performed in many leading roles and now works with conductors at the University of Newcastle
- Kent McIntosh – tenor who regularly performs with Opera Australia.
