Congratulations Rachel Bate
On Friday 15th October in the distinguished presence of
the Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia Her Excellency Ms Quentin Bryce AC and His Excellency Mr Michael Bryce AM AE, the near capacity audience was treated to a night of fine music and beautiful singing. The Australian Opera & Ballet Orchestra conducted by Giovanni Reggioli accompanied the singers and the Concert was heard live around Australia on ABC Classic FM. Lyndon Terracini, Opera Australia's Artistic Director, dedicated the evening to the memory of Dame Joan Sutherland in an opening address.
The evening was hosted by the delightful Sara Macliver while past winner Emma Pearson enthralled the audience during the adjudication deliberations.
