Piano dame to celebrate 94 years
MAREEBA’S grand dame of the piano, Pam Strelinkoff , is hosting a special party to celebrate her 94th birthday on Sunday, 9 July at the Mareeba Spanish Club.
Pam has been a central part of the region’s music scene for over 60 years, she taught piano to multiple students, played in dance bands and piano bars and was the pianist for the Mareeba based choir Sing Australia/Tablelands International Singers.
She grew up playing piano in Warwick but moved to the far north after spotting an ad in the paper for a piano player in Innisfail, the rest is history.
To celebrate Pam’s long life and contributions to the region’s musical industry, a birthday party will be held next Sunday at the Mareeba Spanish Club from 2-6pm and all of Pam’s family, friends and acquaintances are invited to attend.
Tea and coffee will be provided for afternoon tea but there is BYO food and drinks, a $5 donation is being requested to cover hall hire and other costs.
Any enquires about the party can be directed to Alison on 0428 442 336 or Robert on 0437 335 871.
