A Farewell to Doris

A tribute to the legendary Doris Day

Saturday 28 March | 8pm

Following the recent passing of the legendary Doris Day, acclaimed Australian singer Melinda Schneider pays tribute to her childhood idol in A Farewell To Doris, performing all of Doris’ timeless hits, including Que Sera, SeraSentimental JourneyEverybody Loves a Lover and Secret Love, backed by the wonderful Young At Heart Orchestra.

A nostalgic concert celebration of a remarkable life. Melinda’s love affair with Doris Day started when she saw Calamity Jane when she was just eight. “I thought she was the best of everything a woman can be, and when I grew up I wanted to be just like her,” Melinda says. “Whenever I revisit some of her old movies, I’m transported back to that place, a place of happiness and pure joy.

In 2010, Melinda released the acclaimed tribute album Melinda Does Doris – A Tribute to Doris Day, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Jazz and Blues chart, remaining there for nine weeks. The following year, Melinda starred in her own hugely successful original theatre show, DORIS, Doris Day – So Much More Than the Girl Next Door, which she wrote with David Mitchell of Dusty/Shout fame. The show played to packed houses across the country, including a sold-out show at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall in 2012.
