Bianca Andrew embarks on her musical journey
Posted on 18 December 2014
In the last edition of Aria we reported that the young NZ mezzo soprano Bianca Andrew had received a Foundation tuition grant. She subsequently received another award in the form of the Kiri Te Kanawa Scholarship as the singer judged to have outstanding potential which was awarded by Kathryn Harries (Chief Judge of the 2014 Lexus Song Quest) following the Lexus masterclass tour. Armed with these two awards Bianca moved to London to commence an Artist Masters in vocal performance at the Guildhall where she is studying with renowned soprano Yvonne Kenny.
