Singing fam­ily’s praises

Wanneroo Weekender - - Front Page -

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.
