Cabaret show A Migrant's Son will include community choir in Tailem Bend performance | VIDEO

If you've ever dreamed of singing in a cabaret choir, this could be your chance.

Michaela Burger will bring her award-winning show A Migrant's Son, the true story of Greek migration to Australia in the 1930s, to Tailem Bend in September.

The show has almost everything: triumph over adversity, sacrifices for the love of family, laughs, tears, reflections on themes of racism and intolerance, traditional instruments including the bouzouki, and the reputation that follows a premiere at the 2018 Adelaide Cabaret Festival.

What it doesn't have - yet - is a chorus of singers.

Anyone with a background in singing, or who would like to give it a go, is invited to a first public rehearsal at Tailem Bend RSL from 4pm to 6.30 this Sunday, led by Adelaide-based musician Carol Young.

There is no need to register in advance; just to rock up on the day.

Ms Burger said the inclusion of a community choir in the cabaret show gave it an extra something.

"To hear their beautiful beautiful voices in old town halls just lifts the experience," she said.

Country Arts SA and Tailem Bend Rotary Club will present the cabaret show at Tailem Bend Town Hall on September 16.
