To celebrate Newsboys Foundation’s 125th anniversary, we collaborated with Melbourne Youth Orchestras (MYO), Outer Urban Projects (OUP) and the Melbourne Recital Centre to present the 125 BPM concert at the Melbourne Recital Centre. The concert featured didgeridoo virtuoso and composer William Barton. There was also a guest appearance by Bob Urquhart, Newsboy of the Year in 1947 and Natalie Lucic from Western Edge Youth Arts. We were delighted to have Margaret Tran, winner of the 2014 Newsboys Foundation Youth Leadership Award to welcome guests and introduce Bob.
Margaret, Bob, and all the young performers provided inspiring examples of people who have benefited from Newsboys support.
The concert was an outstanding success! Big thanks to MYO, OUP and the Melbourne Recital Centre. Congratulations to William Barton, Brett Kelly, Irine Vela and all the young people who performed so brilliantly.
