Last night saw me at Hares and Hyenas in Fitzroy, getting ready for In Bed with Amy and Friends as a part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival. Amy Bodossian is an incredibly talented and creative soul who can sing, write phenomenal poetry and captivate audiences with her charm and wit. Oh and she’s funny too!
The middle photo is of the fabulous bed from which Amy interviewed her incredible guests Farhad Bandesh and Andy Grace last night. The conversations were heart felt and moving. Listening to them speak made me want to go home and hug my kids with so much gratitude for the life I am privileged to live.
Looking at the third photo, it's hard to believe I was the kid who got kicked out of two school choirs and told to mime the words for the grade six musical while I stood on stage and everybody around me sang.
Fast forward to now. After six years of singing lessons that’s me on stage in the Lighthouse choir as a backup singer to the amazing Amy Bodossian. A huge shout out to my wonderful singing teacher Katrina Pezzimenti of Accent Voice Studio. Thank you for teaching me to sing!
It was an honour and a joy to sing with all of these beautiful women. Big thanks to Helena Plazza for teaching us the harmonies and being a brilliant choir leader. And thanks to singing buddies Di Cousens, Anna and Carmen. I can’t wait till we sing together again on the 21st!
If you missed out on last night, there’s one more performance on Friday 21st October. Get your tickets here.
