The Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation is hosting a concert at the Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre, which will raise money for health providers in the North East.

Headlining the show will be Josh Piterman, who has just been announced in the lead role of Phantom in the upcoming Sydney Opera House season of Phantom of the Opera, in September 2021. He has also played the role in London's West End.

"We are thrilled that Josh Piterman will be performing for us and helping to raise much-needed funds for hospitals in our region. This will be a wonderful surprise gift for Mother’s Day," says president of the foundation, Graeme Simpfendorfer.

"We hope our community will book their tickets early and show their support for the work of the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation. It’s going to be a terrific concert."

Piterman will be joined by leading Australian musical director, pianist and composer John Foreman OAM, and Australian singer and musician Lisa Edwards.

CEO of North East Health Wangaratta, Fiona Shanks, says they are thrilled to have the community support.

"All hospitals need more than what we can reasonably afford, so it's so important to have connections into the community, such as this one," she says.

"We're about to commence a major redevelopment of our hospital, we have a huge list of equipment, so we're really excited to see if we can tick off something on that list from this wonderful day."

Tickets are now on sale, and they are limited due to COVID-19 restrictions, so get in fast!
