"Here’s to Life’
60+ years in under 60 minutes. Anne-Maree McDonald sings and plays though the mercifully potted version of her life in music and singing, divorce and cancer, children and love
Anne-Maree McDonald's first professional gig was touring Australia as a 17yr old back up singer to Rick Wakeman (Journey To The Centre Of The Earth).
The rest of her teenage years were spent studying opera and performing as a singer/songwriter/pianist on Kevin Dennis' New Faces (anyone who is old enough to remember that should be laid to rest) and all the fabulous and much missed Midday Shows like Mike Walsh, Ray Martin, Don Lane, Bert
Newton... heaven 🙌 She also had stints on Prisoner (Cell Block H) among other soapies...
Anne-Maree joined The Australian Opera at 21, as a principal soprano under the musical leadership of Richard Bonynge and Joan Sutherland where she performed many leading roles at the Sydney Opera House and around Australia.
It's been a long journey from then until now, but her passion has always been to discover how to express life and love, through singing and music. Her principal dedication nowadays is to nurture young performers, to encourage them to find their true voices, in their work, or 'art'. It's a humbling responsibility. 'Children will listen'.
