Redland soprano Leah Lever is set to debut her soiree style solo show in her hometown at the Donald Simpson Community Centre in Cleveland at 2pm on April 27.

Leah said she was tailoring the show so that it included songs from movie musicals and other tunes suitable to people of all ages.

"I've structured it so that groups, friends, families, couples and individuals can all enjoy a musical afternoon and perhaps also purchase refreshments or a light meal at the venue while they are there," she said.

Leah has a strong reputation for being a community-minded performer and was named Redland City's Young Citizen of the Year in 2017 for her musical achievements. At age 13, she recorded her CD Dreamcatcher, produced by international soprano and Redlands resident, Mirusia Louwerse.

At age 15, Leah was accepted into one of Queensland's leading universities where she now studies music full time, skipping Years 11 and 12.

Now she is almost half way through her degree and already considering the possibility of an Honours year.

Living up to her reputation for community spirit and now aged 16, Leah will be singing the Australian Anthem immediately before stepping onto the Donald Simpson Community Centre stage. This anthem performance will take place at Victoria Point Sharks Football Club prior to the main game kick off to mark Anzac Day.

On April 25, she will sing the Australian and New Zealand anthems at the Redland Bay dawn service and then go on to perform at the Renaissance Village Retirement Village's Anzac commemoration.

And on April 26, she will sing at the Alexandra Hills State School Anzac ceremony.

"Although I am emerging as a semi-professional artist, I believe in the importance of balancing my career aspirations with community contributions and my love of the Redlands," Leah said.

"That's why I am so keen to keep ticket prices reasonable and entertain with a versatile repertoire the whole family can enjoy."

Tickets are $10. Book with the Donald Simpson Community Centre on 3821 1089.
