CAN­NING Vale soprano Magda Lisek can­not wait for her con­cert at the Gov­ern­ment House Ball­room.

The for­mer Carey Bap­tist Col­lege stu­dent will join pi­anist Mark Cough­lan, mezzo-soprano Kather­ine Goy­der and in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned tenor Paul O’Neill for her sec­ond con­cert at the venue on Septem­ber 16.

De­spite be­ing just 24 years old, Lisek has ex­pe­ri­ence beyond her years, hav­ing per­formed as First Gos­sip in Jac­ques Ibert’s An­gelique, Lady Bil­lows in WAAPA's adap­ta­tion of Al­bert Her­ring and Brunnhilde in new play Opera! The Opera.

The WA Acad­emy of Per­form­ing Arts grad­u­ate said she could not wait to set foot in­side the Gov­ern­ment House again.

“I love per­form­ing and com­ing to con­certs at Gov­ern­ment House Ball­room," she said.

“The venue is so mag­nif­i­cent – the chan­de­liers, the ar­chi­tec­ture, the acous­tics; there re­ally isn't an­other place like it in WA.”

Lisek said it was a priv­i­lege to be able to per­form at the venue again.

“I wanted this con­cert to be an un­for­get­table night of un­for­get­table and pop­u­lar mu­sic, a night that every­one can en­joy and say ‘hey I know this song’,” she said.

“There will def­i­nitely be some­thing for every­one, in­clud­ing a few songs by Chopin in Pol­ish that might not have been heard by an Aus­tralian au­di­ence be­fore.”

Tick­ets are $45 for adults, $35 for con­ces­sion and $30 per per­son for group book­ings of 10 or more.
