Choirs - flavour of the month

Screenshot 2024-04-16 at 4.01_edited.png

I love having a variety of things to do. The month of April seems to be about choirs - performances with the UNSW Collegium Musicum Choir in the Sir John Clancy Auditorium as well as performances with the Sydney Male Choir in Newcastle and the Blue Mountains. 

Click here to see the Collegium Musicum Choir performance. I perform in the first work, Bryson's 'The Field' (Australian premiere) and the two dramatic works at the end of the program, 'Dark Night of the Soul' and 'Luminous Night of the Soul' by the Norwegian composer Gjeilo. 

"Here is a pianist who has at her disposal a myriad of different colours and who knows how to take the time to let the music speak … it was a performance of authority."

Auckland Scoop 

"Cutting was technically assured with excellent control of the keyboard…expressive in the darker passages…she threw herself feverishly into the Allegro movement almost to exhaustion. It was an impressive rendition…

Courier Mail

"And boy, has she made changes ... Who knew classical music could be so fun, am I right?"
