A Bellbird Park student and emerging musical talent will make her mark at the upcoming ‘Ipswich Unearthed‘ concert this Saturday, February 25.

Sascha Rosal, in Year 11 at Bellbird Park State Secondary College, will be performing a 20-minute live set at the music venue Studio 188 — as part of an ongoing council funded initiative aiming to ‘unearth’ emerging musicians, including school students.

The event takes place from 8pm on Saturday, February 25, with tickets priced at just $15. Josiah Hill, Elanie Viljoen, and Civil Disturbance will also be performing.

Sascha, 15, is a gifted vocalist, piano-player, and guitarist, and recently shared her thoughts about her ambition as an emerging artist.

“As a singer, my main goal in the music industry is to create music that focuses on growth, healing, and love,” Sascha said.

“I want to highlight all the struggles we go through as a major part of us growing as people.”

‘Ipswich Unearthed’ is run by Ipswich City Council and provides young performers with the opportunity to work alongside industry professionals in a professional performance environment, and includes the option to partake in a special workshop held afterwards at the concert venue.

Sascha has been invited to attend the workshop and hopes to further develop her skills within the music industry.

Studio 188 is located at 188 Brisbane Street, Ipswich. Venue & Bar open from 7:30pm to 10:00pm. All ages are welcome. Seating is allocated.

Tickets can be purchased here. For details about a special discount, visit the Bellbird Park State Secondary College Facebook post here.
