Event description

Description

Come and join Soprano, Dania Cornelius, Contralto, Emily Bauer Jones and Pianist, David Paterson on the evening of October 25th for an emotive journey through the history of song. Lose yourself (in song) as this trio performs Aria’s, Art Songs and Lieder from the Baroque to Contemporary. You will be treated to a selection of songs from the likes of Handel, Puccini, Schubert and Copeland. This tour de force will follow the development of voice through the ages. Though this is the first time performing together, each artist is a master in his or her own right. Expect to visit a range of emotions as you traverse this varied songscape.

Dania studied at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, adding 3 post-graduate studies in performance, teaching and vocal pedagogy. She studied voice with Dr Margreta Elkins, Margaret Schindler, Raymond Connell and Joseph Ward OBE. As a core member of Opera Queensland since 1998, she appeared in over 30

Operas and concerts. More recently, she performed in the Australian premier of Phillip Glass’s new opera The Perfect American. Singing the Witch and the Mother in Humperdinck’s opera Hansel & Gretel, Dania toured and performed extensively throughout NSW and QLD. She was also a member of the Moving Opera! Team (Opera Queensland), touring for 6years throughout urban, rural and remote QLD, NSW and SA, presenting workshops and concerts in schools and communities. As a recipient of the Ian Potter Cultural Grant, Dania was enabled to travel to Germany where she studied under Cord Garben (Deutsche Grammaphon) Strauss’s Vier Letzte Lieder. Dania’s vocal interests also lie outside of the classical stage, performing at numerous festivals in Queensland, Singapore and Taiwan. Since 2010 Dania has also performed with Opracus, a circus/opera fusion performance group, challenging herself to sing whilst flying.

David began playing the violin at the age of 4, the piano at 7 and within five years had completed the initial eight grades of the A.M.E.B. piano scheme. At 12, David entered Newington College as a music scholar and in addition to his piano studies, studied composition and musicology with Richard Gill for a period of eight years before moving to London to complete his B.Mus. (Hons) at the Royal College of Music where he studied with noted pianist and professor, Julian Jacobson. David has also received tuition from Boris Berman, Olli Mustonen, Piers Lane and Michael Kieran Harvey. Whilst living in London, David worked extensively as a session pianist in addition to giving numerous recitals and concerts with a number of esteemed soloists and chamber groups. David has also featured on ABC Classic FM, Radio National, 2mbsFM and 3mbsFM in addition to having performed in many of the major concert halls and venues in Australia, Romania and the United Kingdom.

Emily graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in London, and later, of the Royal Northern College of Manchester.  Between 1993 and 1995 she was the recipient of a Countess of Munster Musical Trust and has studied voice with Russell Smythe, Robert Alderson, Marjorie Thomas and with Dame Janet Baker. Amongst many highly acclaimed performances, Emily's 'expressive depth of voice' has featured as a soloist in Elgar’s Sea Pictures in the Altes Rathaus in Vienna in 2007 and in Rossini’s Stabat Mater with the Guernsey Sinofia Orchestra & Chorus in 2015. Other roles include Nancy in Britten’s Albert Herring for Victorian Opera, Third Secretary in Nixon in China also for Victorian Opera, a role which she has repeated at the 2016 Auckland Festival and Suzuki in Madame Butterfly for Welsh National Opera.
