September 8 is going to be a treat to the ears as the Cooloola Coast Youth Activity Project showcases the next generation of musical stars.

One highlight will be the sweet melodies of Chloe Shieh. At just 14 ½ years old (that half counts I’m told), she has spent over two thirds of her short life studying classical music. Her talents have earned her the Most Promising Instrumentalist 2018 at the Gympie Eisteddfod and she has taken home the $200 bursary two years running.

Apart for competing in eisteddfods, Chloe also performs in orchestras playing violin and cello and has recently been invited to play in the Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra. Chloe said, “ I love doing solos and gettting a buzz from performing onstage.”

Chloe is a distance education student of Jubilee High School and part time Central Qld University student, all while living on a self-sufficient, off the grid farm at Wilsons Pocket. Her discipline and dedication can be heard in her professional approach to music.

The Cooloola Coast Youth Activity Project is excited to have Chloe perform at the Sound of Teen Spirit, as she will bring a different flavour to the night. Other acts include Ashley Pel, Braden Gray and Nathan Murfet, Charli Metropoulus, Lotus Clout, Hayden McIntyre and Zackariah the Man.

Cooloola Coast Community Complex doors open at 6pm and the show starts at 6.30pm. Entry is only $2, under 12 just $1 and entry includes a lucky door ticket. There will be food and drink available on the night. For more information call Jess Milne on 0411 218 254.
