2017 Alexandra Woodhouse Appleby

2017 was a busy and most rewarding year for Alexandra.  In February she sang in the Day’s Bay opera Chorus for ​Theodora
and ​Eugene Onegin.  She also performed with the NZ Freemason Opera Chorus in ​Carmen, The Damnation of Faust and had her first solo role playing the part of Barbarina in Eternity Opera’s production of ​The Marriage of Figaro.

As part of her course work she performed in the NZSM opera, ​The Cunning Little Vixen by Janacek.  And of course, she had other university commitments which further enriched her deepening knowledge of music, and more specifically, classical singing.  Throughout 2017 she sang in Orpheus Choir as one of their scholar members and had the benefit of singing solos in some of the concerts.
Alexandra plans to put her scholarship towards the 2019 IFAC Handa NZ Singing School.
