The next Gisborne Singers concerts will feature a 23 year old former Gisborne resident. Rosemary Cocklin will sing the soprano solo in Karl Jenkins’ Cantata Memoria – For the Children. Rosie first became keen on singing at the age of 12 and has completed her Bachelor of Music (Honours) at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music. Currently with Opera Scholars Australia, she has performed lead roles in a variety of works, with credits including a 2016 National Liederfest finals award, a scholarship with the Melbourne Bach Choir, and is the founder and curator of local musical ensemble Youth of Today. A former choir member since the age of 15, Rosie returns to the Gisborne Singers in her new role; one which the Musical Director and choir are anticipating with delight. The choir will perform with professional orchestra and local children’s choir in this exciting venture (which is also the Australian Premiere)
