The reviews are in! I’m loving performing in Paradise! at the Melbourne Fringe Festival, and, as it turns out, the punters are also enjoying the show. Thanks to The Hugging Comedians for the review! Only one show to on Tuesday 18 September—be sure to book a ticket and come along.
From the extremely talented performer [Alexandra Mathew] who opened and closed the show with a killer voice, to the guest performer in the finale and all the absurd characters in between, this show stays with you for better or worse.
I loved performing at Winchelsea Tea Rooms the other week, particularly because I had the chance to sing Schubert’s Frühlingsglaube (‘Faith in Spring’)—my favourite song for this time of year. Here’s a little vid from the performance…
From 11 to 12pm on Sunday 16 September, soprano Jenna Roubos, pianist Georgina Lewis and I will be entertaining the masses at Montsalvat for the annual Montsalvat Arts Festival. We’ll be performing a range of beautiful operatic duets, and gems from the chamber music repertoire. Ticket prices range from $10 to $35, and bookings are essential. See below for the full program.
On Thursday 30 August, Jenna Roubos and I will be trekking down to the Winchelsea Tea Rooms to perform with John Bumford for Winchelsea Morning Melodies. Tickets are $25, and include a delicious morning tea. Doors open 10am for an 11am start. We will be performing a beautiful program featuring our favourite duets and solos:
Purcell arr. Britten: ‘Sound the trumpet’ and ‘Lost is my quiet’
Mendelssohn: 6 Duets Op. 63
Schumann: ‘Du Ring an meinem finger’
Fauré: ‘Puisqu’ici-bas toute âme’, ‘Tarentelle’ and ‘Les Berceaux’
Jenna and I loved participating in the inaugural Melbourne International Festival of Lieder and Art Song, and we were particularly thrilled to perform alongside Dr Graham Johnson OBE for the Gala Concert! See below for some photo highlights…
