The South Burnett Community Orchestra announced on Thursday afternoon that their two-concert series at the weekend, “Music Is Life”, has raised $16,427 for the LifeFlight Foundation.

The concerts, in Kingaroy and Nanango, were held in memory of former orchestra member Sonya Pearson who was killed in a road traffic crash earlier this year.

“Thank you to everyone who sponsored, donated, volunteered and helped in various ways to bring this together in support of such an important service,” an SBCO spokesperson said.
