Video Chat with Cheryl Barker AO

As part of the events for this year’s competition, we were privileged to be able to hold a candid Q&A session with one of Australia’s greatest sopranos, and our vocal adjudicator, Cheryl Barker. This was a fantastic chance to get an insight into the operatic world, hosted by our very own artistic director, Katy Frewen-Lord.

We know you will hang on to her every word in this recording (in 2 parts):

The Australian Concerto & Vocal Competition would like to thank Cheryl Barker most sincerely for being our vocal adjudicator these past two years and for taking the time to hold this Q&A with us.
