Wendy has been a regular guest performer with VOX joining for many of their concerts over the years.
After graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts, Wendy travelled to the UK to further her studies, specialising in vocal accompaniment with world renowned accompanists Geoffrey Parsons, Roger Vignoles and Robert Sutherland. During her 20 years in London she divided her time between her two passions; educating future young musicians and accompanying. She performed extensively in all the premiere English Concert Halls and accompanied singers from Major Opera Companies including Covent Garden, English National Opera, Glyndebourne and Welsh National.
After returning to Australia in 2000, she lectured in Music Theatre at the University of Ballarat’s Arts Academy (now Federation University) and completed her Master’s Degree, with her dissertation “The Role of the Music Director within an Educational Institution”, again reflecting her love of both teaching and performing. Wendy is now an accompanist and piano teacher at Ballarat Grammar. She enjoys working with the musicians of the future, and has accompanied well over 100 VCE exams and countless AMEB exams.
Since her arrival back in Australia, Wendy has accompanied many major Australian artists including Peter Coleman-Wright, Cheryl Barker, Jane Rutter and David Hobson.
