It is Musical Society Mildura’s pleasure to announce that two Life Memberships were awarded this weekend. The first was an honorary life membership to Vaughan Stirrat. Vaughan’s contributions spanned at least 4 decade as a member of the orchestra and also as Musical Director. When presented the award by Life Member Peter Lang, Vaughan’s first thought was “what did I do to deserve this?”. You did a lot Vaughan.
The second Life Member award was presented to Donald Mayne by Matthew Capp and Brendan Alderton on behalf of the Musical Society committee. Don’s first production was in 1997 aged 13 in the orchestra. He has gone on to being involved in 30 productions, first in the orchestra, then as Musical Director, Vice President and a 4 year tenure as President. We are immensely thankful for the time and effort he gives to the society and the theatre and music knowledge that he imparts to all of our members.
Congratulations Vaughan and Donald.
