So­prano re­turn­ing to WAAPA

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page -

SO­PRANO Emma Matthews, last in Perth for WA Opera’s The Pearl­fish­ers, pre­sented the clas­si­cal mu­sic per­for­mance awards on the day it was an­nounced she would re­turn to her old stomp­ing ground at WAAPA as head of clas­si­cal voice.

“I've had an amaz­ing singing ca­reer and will still be singing, but I wanted a teach­ing po­si­tion where I could make a difference,” Matthews said.

“I thought this was ideal be­cause when I left WAAPA years ago, I had every in­ten­tion of com­ing back.

“I’m mov­ing back with my boys and hus­band and we’re look­ing around the Su­bi­aco or West Leed­erville area, de­pend­ing on where the boys get in to school.”
