A bush fire relief fundraiser at the Nowra School of Arts raised more than $3500, organisers say.
The concert was held on Friday, February 7.
Organiser Sue Hammond-Warne said she was pleased with the event.
"On behalf of the Shoalhaven Community Choir, I wish to thank everyone for their assistance in making Friday nights' concert a wonderful success," Sue said.
"We raised $2,745 for the Mayoral Relief fund and $833 for the West Nowra RFS."
Artists who donated their time and talents on the night were Peter Bishop, Catie Halliday, Leanne and Anthony Girdlestone, Steve Ryan, Sing Australia Vincentia, Olivia Corish, Raised Voices Choir, SiRenics (Simon and Serenity Pavitt) and the Shoalhaven Community Choir.
Olivia Corish also performed a beautiful song she wrote especially for the event called "From the Ashes".
Special thanks also goes to accompanist Jane Ryan for her wonderful talents on the grand piano.
Master of ceremonies Peter Bishop interviewed Amanda and Nick Kilminster, members of the West Nowra RFS, and asked them to share some of their experiences of recent fire events.
Nick and Amanda both commented on the unpredictability of the fires. They also reflected on the struggles of the fire crews after a day battling the fires. Amanda introduced some of the female fire fighters who came to the event.
Special thanks from the organisers went to: Simon Pavitt, Ben Gibson and Graham Dyer from Everlight Productions for providing the sound and stage support, Shoalhaven City Council for waiving the hall hiring fees, Coles supermarket for donation for food and raffle prizes, CWA Nowra for assistance with supper, Albatross Musical Society including Julia and Geoff Armstrong for providing front of house support and the Nowra Printing Company for printing the posters.
Also donated for a silent auction was a photograph on canvas by photographer Anthony Stone of the aircraft Zeus putting out fires at Brundee. The prize was won by Ms Elizabeth Daly.
The concert ended with all performers on stage singing a resounding chorus of "We are Australian".
