So­prano star to per­form in Man­durah

Southern Telegraph - - Lifestyle - Emily Sharp

For the past nine years Miru­sia Louw­erse has been hailed the op­er­atic an­gel of Aus­tralia, tour­ing the globe as An­dre Rieu’s star so­prano.

The 31-year-old in­ter­na­tional per­former has just re­leased her first al­bum, This Time To­mor­row, and is bring­ing her na­tional tour to the Man­durah Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre on June 10.

“The fo­cus of the al­bum and the tour is of­fer­ing a brighter to­mor­row,” Louw­erse said.

“Mu­sic can trans­port peo­ple and help them in times of strug­gle, sad­ness and stress.

“This is why I love what I do, I want to help peo­ple, and to do this through mu­sic is mag­i­cal.”

The In­ter­na­tional Am­bas­sador of the Aus­tralian Chil­dren's Mu­sic Foun­da­tion, Louw­erse is the only clas­si­cal artist with an ARIA Chart award and has more than 27 mil­lion views on YouTube for her ren­di­tion of Ave Maria.

At the ten­der age of 21, Louw­erse be­came the youngest-ever win­ner of the pres­ti­gious Dame Joan Suther­land Opera Award and has come a long way since study­ing opera at the Queens­land Con­ser­va­to­rium.

The Bris­bane-born star­let will take to the stage to present a two-hour clas­si­cal-cross­over pro­gram with the back­ing of her cham­ber orches­tra, which will in­clude a strings sec­tion, harp, per­cus­sion, dou­ble bass, grand pi­ano and cho­ral singers.

The show will fea­ture some of her most well-loved songs in­clud­ing Ave Maria, Ro­manza, Mem­ory, Wish­ing You Were Some­how Here Again and All I Ask Of You, along with her own com­po­si­tions.
