Daffodil Day concert at Our Place
Performer Sophie Turner is putting on a lunchtime performance this Friday at Our Place.
The performance is set to add a great vibe to what is already a very vibrant and engaging daffodil day in the CBD.
Bay of Plenty fundraising coordinator for the Cancer Society Karen Gemmell says Sophie is passionate about the opportunity to give back to the community that has so generously supported her in the past.
“She loves performing, so having being able to use her talents to help raise much needed funds is very important to her.”
Cancer has affected Sophie’s family so Daffodil Day and the Cancer Society is a cause she is very passionate about.
At only 16 years of age and already an accomplished singer and actress, Sophie has a powerful voice that graces the stage. Her fearless approach to daily life defies the challenges she faces having been diagnosed with Tourette's, OCD, ADHD and autism.
The next step in Sophie’s career is travelling to the USA, as she was been accepted in to the 2021 Kiwi All Starts trip to America.
The Kiwi All-Stars will travel during the 2021 January school holidays to New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles and Disneyland. Students will spend time in New York City collaborating on a performance piece under the guidance of some of the best industry experts and Broadway performers.
They will attend Broadway acting workshops and see Broadway shows while also exploring the sights of New York City. In Atlanta, the students will join 6500 like-minded young performers at the international Junior Theatre Festival.
This is where the Kiwi All-Stars will get their chance to shine. They will perform their adjudication piece for feedback, attend skill development workshops presented by the world’s best teaching artists, watch performances of brand new musicals and get advice from celebrity guests. Past celebrities include Zac Efron and Darren Criss.
Sophie will be performing in Our Place this Friday from 12pm.
