You can’t miss The D Majors. They sing with voices as loud as their bright pink stage costumes and always with a smile.
Australia’s first “breast cancer choir” is about fun, music and friendship with a serious mission – shining a light on an all-too familiar and often devastating disease.
Under the glittery baton of Lauren O’Brien, and accompanied by renowned pianist Terence Koo, the D Majors raise awareness of breast cancer and other cancers affecting women and support those whose lives have been touched by cancer.
The D Majors are cancer survivors, friends, family and supporters, health practitioners and community members who have all, in some way, been touched by cancer. They are introverts, extroverts and anything in between united by the joy of singing.
Now in its sixth year, the D Majors choir (formerly known as the Choir of Hard Knockers) continues to delight and engage audiences throughout the Hunter and beyond.
On the back of their highly acclaimed memorial concert at Lizotte’s in May, the D Majors are returning to celebrate life, colour and voice in a Christmas Carnivale Concert at Lizotte’s on December 9.
They will be backed by the Terence Koo Trio with special guest Mark “Tinno” Tinson on guitar. The concert will also feature special guest vocalists Bella McGavin, Georgie Rose and the Supertonics.
The show promises to make you laugh, cry, and sing your heart out – just like the women of the D Majors do every week.
Proceeds from the performance will be shared with Stop Ovarian Cancer, formed in 2010 by a group of Newcastle women who were inspired by a much-loved family member and friend with ovarian cancer.
Her vision was that all women undertaking a similar journey with ovarian cancer should be provided with information and support services during their illness. The group has so far raised close to $400,000 in support of that vision in the Hunter.
The D Majors will also have for sale at the concert their very own cookbook, and limited-edition silk and cotton scarves featuring reproductions of original artwork by choir resident artists Maureen Harding and Linda Alcorn.
