NEW ZEALAND POP-OPERA TRIO
jess
I've recently found out that the kids I went to school with remembered me as 'the girl who forced everyone to either watch or participate in the musicals she wrote'. I guess I've always wanted to share music with the world (whether they wanted to hear it or not!) From a very young age I've participated in piano lessons, singing lessons and dance lessons. I'm not entirely sure how I became so enamoured with music. As an 80s child, one of my earliest memories is singing Celine Dion's 'Think Twice' over and over again in my grandparent's garage in Bournemouth, UK. After the 'concert' I would hand out small bars of Toblerone to thank my family for listening.
I'm so excited to be a part of Tre-Belle. It's a pleasure to be working with incredibly talented professionals who are also wonderful friends. I'm looking forward to seeing where it takes us. I hope it's far!
