POWERFUL operatic soprano, Jelena Mami? will perform Schubert, Glinka, Mascagni, Rachmaninov, Menotti and Webern at Wesley Music Centre’s Wesley Music Centre’s “Wednesday Lunchtime Live”.
Mami? is everywhere these days, raising the rafters at Llewellyn Hall and smaller venues. Born in Canberra, she moved to Croatia when she was five, making her first public appearance as a singer at age 7, then later graduating there in medicine and vocal performance before returning to Canberra, where she is doing a Master’s at the ANU School of Music under tenor Paul McMahon.
She’ll be accompanied on piano by Australian pianist Anne Ewing, a former pupil of Larry Sitsky who won the Winifred Burston Memorial Prize for the most outstanding pianist at the ANU. She too is pursuing a Masters of Music Performance at the ANU, under concert-pianist, Katherine Day.
Together Mami? and Ewing perform as the duo, ‘Aves Nocturnas’.
