A chance to learn from music royalty

ST MARY's Catholic College students witnessed one of Australasia's most celebrated operatic and concert artists, Greta Bradman recently at St Peter's Lutheran College.

The stunning soprano, Greta Bradman, who is also the granddaughter of the legendary batsman, Sir Donald Bradman has performed for world leaders from the UK, USA, China, India, Monaco and Australia with highlights including playing for past U.S President, Barrack Obama as well as the British Royal Family.

St Mary's music teacher, Jane Iszlaub said the opera singer passed on some great advice to the Year 11 and 12 senior music students.

"Greta spoke about how important it is to engage their audience as well as being expressive in the way they sing,” she said.

The St Mary's music students have been working closely with visually impaired opera singer, Julie-Ann Bell who is also the vocal coach for the Beauty and the Beast production.

Mrs Iszlaub said the St Mary's students shoud be proud of how well they are progressing.

"Our students are on the same level as some of these students from bigger city schools who have had significant amounts of training,” Mrs Iszlaub said.
