Lexi’s mother Susan, flew to London and accompanied her to Vienna.  Lexi has completed her Masters Degree in Vocal Performance at the renowned Royal college of Music.

Lexi has also been selected to perform, in November in London, the Symphony No. 3 (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs) by Henryk Gorecki with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

This haunting piece for solo soprano and orchestra has as its dominant theme motherhood and separation through war.

Prior to that, Lexi will compete in the City of Sydney Eistedfodd and the Macdonald’s Operatic Aria Competition before returning to England in September where she has been selected to perform at the International Aldeburgh Festival, in the Britten–Pears Young Artist Programme, an event that which has launched many artists’ careers.
