‘‘It’s a really big team effort, all the volunteers are offering their services and skills,’’ she said.
‘‘It’s a big thank you for Azem and his family and volunteers.’’
Mr Elmaz said the support his organisation received from the community was humbling.
‘‘Whenever we do anything the support is there from the community, it’s amazing to be honest,’’ he said.
The concert will be at Friar’s Cafe and the adjoining car park.
Ms Lea said it would be the first event there.
‘‘It needs to be utilised because it’s in the centre of town,’’ she said.
About 20 Goulburn Valley musicians will take the stage, including guitarists, drummers, bass players, a keyboardist, saxophone player and harpist, while about 10 singers will rotate between songs.
