SOUTH Perth opera singers Corinne Cowl­ing and Amy Yarham are farewelling Perth to em­bark on their next step in their ca­reers.

The tal­ented so­pra­nos re­cently grad­u­ated from the WA Academy of Per­form­ing Arts with a grad­u­ate di­ploma in opera stud­ies and are now head­ing over­seas.

Yarham was ac­cepted into the Masters of Mu­sic in Clas­si­cal Voice at the Man­hat­tan School of Mu­sic in New York City, where she will com­mence her stud­ies in Septem­ber.

Cowl­ing was awarded the Guild­hall School of Mu­sic and Drama Award at the 2014 IFAC Aus­tralian Singing Com­pe­ti­tion.

The award granted her a place in the Masters of Mu­sic Vo­cal Stud­ies at the Guild­hall School of Mu­sic and Drama in Lon­don. She will also start her stud­ies in Septem­ber.

“I am very ex­cited to be go­ing, but I am also ap­pre­hen­sive due to the cost and the rent in Lon­don,” Corinne said.

“My aim is to have an in­ter­na­tional ca­reer and work with di­rec­tors and con­duc­tors are who are ex­tremely inspiring and able to make opera ac­ces­si­ble to a wide au­di­ence.”

To cel­e­brate their grad­u­a­tion, the pair will be per­form­ing one last time in Perth on Satur­day, Au­gust 1, at the Trinity Unit­ing Church in the city.

The con­cert will fea­ture WA Opera’s Katja Webb, Cowl­ing’s sis­ter Mor­gan Cowl­ing, ac­tor and play­wright Nick Ma­claine and ac­com­pa­nist Caro­line Bad­nall. South Perth opera singers Corinne Cowl­ing and Amy Yarham will say farewell in

con­cert be­fore head­ing over­seas.
