Goulburn Vallery Concert Orchestra tuned up on Saturday, June 18 at its 26th annual concert.

Performing The Birds at Shepparton’s Riverlinks Eastbank venue, the 40-piece orchestra was joined by Shepparton choir 36 Degrees South for the 2pm matinee show.

Crowds came from all over to immerse themselves in the tunes, refined by hours of rehearsals.

The News was there to take in the sweet melodies and to capture a few action shots.
