Young @ HEART – Riversong
Riding on a wave of outstanding reviews after a fabulous performance at Busselton Songfest, Riversong hails from Margaret River.
A community choir who love to sing, they delight in entertaining their audience with humour and the unexpected. From traditional gospel to contemporary arrangements, and a smattering of originals, they come under the passionate musical direction of Ruth Boyd. Riversong are a quirky bunch who enjoy the camaraderie of community singing and making beautiful music.
The Young@HEART music program is held at Margaret River HEART – Nala Bardip Mia every Monday morning from 10am to 11am. The program does not run on public holidays or when there is another major event in the foyer.
The initiative was developed to safely encourage participation in the arts among older residents (over 60s) during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Due to high interest, the free performances have since been opened to people of all ages. Nonetheless, the senior demographic still makes up the majority of the audience.
Young@Heart is broadcast live on Radio Margaret River.
