At Newcastle’s Christ Church Cathedral on Tuesday, March 24, at 7 for 7:30pm, Christ Church Camerata returns for 2015 with something a little different. One of ABC1233’s most popular weekly radio programmes “Banney’s Baton Banter” comes to the concert stage in this not-to-be-missed event. Be part of the live audience as David Banney, ABC’s Paul Bevan, and Christ Church Camerata join for three entertaining Banters in one evening, to be recorded for later broadcast on the ABC. Admission is free (a donation to support the work of the Hunter Medical Research Institute will be received). Tune in to 1233 ABC Newcastle for a chance to win the best seats in the house, or turn up on the night to be part of the audience.
