Early musical life - Just for fun!
My mother claims that I was the loudest baby in the hospital, and because of this was put into the 'bad babies' section at night.
I decided to have a go at singing, and became a member of several choirs. At around this time, I also took part in a number of amateur musicals in the Canberra area.
As a member of the Victoria State Opera Schools Company, I toured Victorian Schools in 1992, in an opera specially written for children, Moon Chariot.
Opera singers are often asked when they first started singing, when and how their opera careers started. Some of us don't start out as singers. As the following photos will show.
