Connor will take to the stage on July 21 in the second half of Taste of Tamworth, performing the Fleetwood Mac hit Landslide, that was later also a success for the Dixie Chicks.
A favourite song of his mum’s, the Colac 16-year-old said Landslide - a story of sadness, hope and change - also carried meaning for him.
“I wanted to learn it for mum, but also for me because I really like the song.”
Connor is no stranger to the COPACC stage, having performed in eight Red Door musicals, four of which he carried a lead role.
He’s currently gearing up for Trinity College’s upcoming musical Footloose in August, when he’ll play the conservative Reverend Shaw Moore.
Connor has also been a regular on the local weekend performing circuit, playing and singing at the Forrest Soup Fest, Miss Francesca’s, the St Mary’s Garden Expo, Gosling Creek Winery, Cornucopia Birregurra and Sunday markets at Kawarren.
Taste of Tamworth is on at COPACC on Saturday, July 21 at 8pm. Tickets start at $43 for adults, $38 for concession and $26 for under 30s. Groups of four get a 10 per cent discount.
