Heather Lee is rated as having one of the “purist” voices in Australia and she’s sung at the White House, United Nations and Sydney 2000 Olympics, performing sacred and traditional music and western classics “with an ability to sing in many languages and styles.” Kim Cunio is a composer, music historian and instrumentalist as well as being able to sing “in a deep velvety bass”. This year he is launching his first opera at the Sydney Opera House. Nerida says the duo’s visit has been made possible, “with the help of a CASP (Country Arts Support Program) grant through Artsoutwest.” We hope the children have fun going on a musical journey around the world!
