A Circle of Song
Monday, 26 March 2012
Visiting guest artist Sharolyn Kimmorley AM, regarded as one of Australia’s finest vocal coaches and accompanists, performs with WAAPA’s postgraduate Classical Vocal students in a night of mellifluous songs, duets and ensembles in the Leiderkreis concert this Thursday 29 March in the Music Auditorium at ECU, Mount Lawley.
With a reputation for producing Australia’s finest singers, we invite you to hear our stars of tomorrow in a program featuring the songs of the great Robert Schumann. This concert features the works of Robert Schumann (including Liederkries Opus 39 as part of the first half of the program) and illustrates the relationship between Schumann and his wife Clara (also a composer and pianist in her own right) not only with song but with the reading of Schumann's letters to Clara by WAAPA Acting Lecturer and Voice Coach, Donald Woodburn.
After studying at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Sharolyn Kimmorley joined the Music Staff of The Australian Opera, where she held the positions of Head of Music Staff, Artistic Administrator, and Director of Music Administration. Sharolyn has been guest vocal coach at the Australian National University, Australian Opera Studio, West Australian Opera, Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, Auckland University, Southern Opera, London's Guildhall School of Music and The Cardiff International Vocal Academy. Sharolyn is currently Artistic Adviser to the Dame Nellie Melba Opera Trust and Chorus Director of Southern Opera in Christchurch.
