Tania Vadeikis -Director of Choral Music is a vocalist and performer of merit in her own right

I have been privileged to be involved in two professional operas this year (2014), the first, ‘The Magic Flute’ (Opera on the Beach) with Opera Australia and then ‘La Boheme’ (Project Puccini) with Opera Queensland.

In my undergraduate and post graduate years, I spent six years training at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts to obtain my B.Ed. and M.Mus.  To put my years of training into practice, alongside my work on a daily basis with A.B. Paterson College students, was a great thrill personally.   To work with top professionals in the operatic field was such a stimulating experience whereby they expected and demanded only the very best.  

It always gives me great pleasure and reward helping to create great performers, but to also become the performer once again was refreshing and invigorating.
