THE Wanneroo Civic Choir will commemorate 100 years since the Anzacs landed at Gallipoli with a cabaret-style concert on November 14.

The choir, founded in 1982, is a four-part group of about 46 men and women that performs at Anzac Day and citizenship ceremonies, Carols by Candlelight in the Supreme Court Gardens and in its own concert each spring.

The concert will be held at the Alexander Heights community centre. Doors will open at 2.15pm, with the show from 2.30pm.

Part proceeds will go to Legacy to help support Australian families of veterans.

The choir meets every Tuesday from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at the Alexander Heights community centre.
