In Harmony since 1946
The choir is very fortunate to have the involvement of many talented performers who provide their time free of charge for the pleasure of our audiences.
Prior to the suspension of performances owing to Covid-19, one of our long-serving and brilliant artists was Anita Kyle, while a recent associate artist was Lucinda who was greatly appreciated in our performances. In addition, our accompanist Hank Xiang performs as a wonderful concert pianist.
A classically trained singer, actor and voice artist, Lucinda has grown up performing everything from comedy, musicals, jazz, and opera.
Lucinda’s recent stage credits include the Sydney season of The Sound Of Music (Gordon Frost Organisation), playing a nun at The Capitol Theatre, and cabaret performances in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals as well as the London Underbelly Festival.
In 2019 Lucinda performed alongside her sister in “The Sin-Sational Rita and Mae”, exploring the lives of Rita Hayworth and Mae West, as part of the Sydney Fringe Festival.
Lyric Soprano, Anita Kyle received her A.Mus.A and L.Mus.A Diplomas in Singing while studying with Maree Ryan at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and studied for a Bachelor of Arts in Music, French and Theatre at the University of New South Wales.
While studying with Anthea Moller, Anita won the National Operatic Aria in Canberra and the ‘MTO German-Australian Opera Grant’ in Melbourne; a 12-month solo contract at the Hessian State Theatre in Wiesbaden, Germany. Anita’s roles included ’15 year old’ in ‘Lulu’, ‘Frasquita’ in Carmen, ‘Sophie’ in ‘Werther’, ‘Sandman’ and ‘Dew Fairy’ in ‘Hansel and Gretel’, ‘Papagena’ in ‘The Magic Flute’, ‘Lieschen’ in Bach’s ‘Coffee Cantata’ and ‘Governess’ in ‘Orpheus and Eurydice’. Anita has just returned to Australia after four years in Germany, which included performances in oratorios and recitals.
