Lainie Carter loves music and performing and wants the community to benefit from the joy at the same time. Lainie plays the flute and percussion in the Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as promoting the Orchestra through social media.
“I help promote the organisation through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, meet with the committee once a month and attend all Orchestra rehearsals and performances, to ensure that the Orchestra is the best community organisation it can be” she said.
With a career in teaching music, it is obvious that music is Lainie’s passion. “Volunteering to work with like-minded people within the group gives me a great deal of self-worth and satisfaction as well as keeping up my musical skills.”
The latest project that the Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra is working on is a joint venture with the Volunteering Gold Coast’s community choir, Voices in Harmony for ANZAC Day call the “Heart of the Volunteer” is a tribute to the ANZACs and is open to the public to attend.
