Soprano star to perform in Mandurah
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.
