RockCan – By Interchange Australia Marketing Manager, Joseph Lyons
Since its beginning in 2009, RockCan has drawn bands from the Southern Highlands together for the enjoyment of the local community. RockCan is a platform for young people with and without disability to showcase their musical talents.
Many of our clients share a passion for music and the Interchange Australia music program offers people the opportunity to join a band, learn to sing, play an instrument and learn how to set up equipment. Participants rehearse weekly under the guidance of our skilled and experienced support staff who have years of experience teaching music and playing in local bands. Participants in the music program showcase the skills they have developed throughout the year at RockCan.
The Hidden Wonders, a band consisting of Interchange Australia clients and support staff have headlined RockCan since its inception. The bands performance improves each year and this is attributable to the new skills that each participant learns as a result of the music program. Over the past two years, The Hidden Wonders have been invited to perform at concerts in Campbelltown, Nowra and Mittagong which is testament to the positive outcomes that the music program delivers and the increasing popularity of RockCan.
The essence of RockCan is the participation, the interaction and the experience that comes with being part of organising and performing in a large music event. RockCan is a much anticipated event on the local music calendar and attendance has grown each year.
Our aim is that with the support of RockCan, clients with an interest in music, production and performance, may pursue their passion and potentially establish a career in this field.
RockCan 2018 will be held at the Mittagong RSL Club on Saturday 20th October. Doors open at 3pm.
We have assembled a fantastic line-up of performers, including The Hidden Wonders, Vesuvius, Squash J and DJs Carolyn Smee & Amy C.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased from the Mittagong RSL Club, the Interchange Australia office in Bowral, the Interchange Australia Narellan Campus and online via the Mittagong RSL Club website.
