Music on the Hill is a series of community music events that bring singer-songwriters and bands to listening audiences and are usually held in Red Hill. This year, Music on the Hill hosts its fourth International Women’s Day show on Friday March 8, in a celebration of women in music.

This year’s line-up promises to be spectacular, featuring world-class vocalists — Australian soul and funk legend Kylie Auldist; Melbourne contemporary violinist and singer-songwriter Xani; Zimbabwean- r’n’b singer-songwriter and former The Voice star Thando; and jazz/pop singer and RocKwiz orchestra keyboardist Clio Renner. They’ll be joined by Peninsula-based world music a cappella group Ling Marra and a seven-piece all-female band featuring a string section. The musical director for the show is Xani Kolac.

The band features Xani on violin, Biddy Connor on viola, Anita Quayle on cello, Clio Renner on keys, Claire Cross on bass, Alex Roper on drums and Kathleen Halloran on guitar.

The Mornington Peninsula rarely sees so much talent together on the one stage, so this show really is a must-see.
