Singing family’s praises
EMMA Matthews loves being a mum and now has a really big family of singers to nurture, as well as her two teenage sons.
The celebrated soprano, winner of more Helpmann Awards than any other individual artist, returned to Perth in January, leaving behind a busy performance schedule in Sydney. The homecoming was motivated by a wish to be among family and teach at her old stamping ground of WAAPA.
Manchester-born Matthews, who grew up in Kingsley, pays homage to her British roots in WASO’s Last Night at the Proms at Perth Concert Hall on July 27 and 29.
Soprano Emma Matthews will perform in The Last Night at the Proms at Perth Concert Hall this weekend.
