NONAGENARIAN Gina Rogers has proven it is never too late to make it in show business.

The 96-year-old performed at an Osborne Park aged care centre with group Harp Harmonies as part of the centre’s arts festival.

Harp Harmonies is an ensemble of mixed ages that performs a variety of hymns and songs, encouraging audience participation.

Music teacher Shamara De Tissera leads the group while Ms Rogers is the soprano.

The latter only discovered she could sing at age 88 and was never exposed to music as a child so is only now learning popular songs.

The performance was part of the Amana Living Arts Festival, which is delivering a quality program to its residents.

A highlight will be WA Symphony Orchestra playing exclusively for residents at Moline Village in Karrinyup.
