Christ Church Beechworth was filled with fine music last week as 25 of the best young opera students in Australia prepared for Opera In The Alps. World Famous Diva and teacher, Yvonne Kenny gave master classes, and the singers practiced in the church from Monday to Friday. Priest in Charge, Mother Bethley Sullivan said that it was a delight to have so many dedicated young people filling our church with songs by Bach, Mozart, Faure, and modern composers as well. "This is all part of our Music Ministry which is underpinned by our fully restored historic William Anderson pipe organ, our Steinbach grand piano, and led by our brilliant organist, Sandra Williams", she said. .............
