Shiraz Club-Mr Riggs at Spicer’s Clovelly

07/09/2017 6:00pm for 6:30pm start

Ben Riggs’ winemaking career is coloured by stints abroad and time tending his own turf, getting to know the lie of the land that is McLaren Vale. But head back to 1985, when Ben was a wee lad (figuratively speaking as size has never been an issue for Ben) and you’ll see he graduated from Roseworthy Agricultural College in Adelaide, what some call Australia’s Oxford of the wine world. Ben’s wines have pleased many palates over the years including those of judges, winning 44 trophies and titles. He has also been nominated Gourmet Traveller WINE Winemaker of the Year in 2005 and 2013. Shiraz is Ben’s first love, having invested hours of hard yakka sculpting and perfecting the Angelina Jolie of varietals – complicated and needy yet incredibly alluring. McLaren Vale, Shiraz’s spiritual home, is Ben’s other first love, and it is this dual passion that drives him to champion McLaren Vale Shiraz on a global scale.

Maleny Singers present Mozart’s “The Magic Flute”

17/06/2017 6:30pm - 8:30pm

The Maleny Singers, bDifferent Dance Academy, and Maleny Performing Arts Orchestra are deep in rehearsal for their show in June. The story, on one level. Is for children, with a dragon, an evil queen, and a Prince who rescues a lovely maiden. On another level, it is a morality play, with an ‘everyman’ comic birdcatcher, and a priesthood with Masonic principles of wisdom and forgiveness. Throughout, the music is late Mozart – light, delightful, and moving. It is the second-most performed opera worldwide, and fans will hear why. Director Margaret Taylor has judiciously abbreviated the text, and the Singers’ favourite soloists and chorus are rehearsing with dedication and humour. There will be lively dancers, colourful costumes, and our tuneful orchestra to add to your enjoyment. Performance dates are as follows: Saturday June 17th, at 6:30 pm; Sunday June 18th at 2pm; Saturday June 24th at 4pm; and Sunday June 25th at 2pm at the Maleny community Centre. Tickets can be booked on https://www.trybooking.com/280878 or by visiting the Maleny Visitor Centre
