Star soprano Alexandra Flood launches Queensland Art Song Festival as part of homecoming tour

QASF-Alexandra-FloodRising star soprano, Alexandra Flood, will be launching Queensland Art Song Festival (QASF) during her latest homecoming tour across Australia this August and September.

Queensland Art Song Festival is a new classical music education event focused on fostering excellence in Art Song performance and practice in Australia.

The festival will deliver world-class training opportunities to local students with visiting international faculty, present a series of recitals, showcase cutting-edge research and career development support.

“Sharing my passion for Art Song has been the driving force behind the idea for this new and exciting festival for Queensland,” said Soprano Alexandra Flood.

“I know Brisbane audiences love Art Song, and I know the extremely talented and driven local students are eager for enriching Art Song learning and performance opportunities. We can’t wait.”

The lyric coloratura soprano has proven to be one of the most in-demand young artists working across Europe and Australia. Recent debuts include performances for Opéra National de Paris in Benjamin Britten’s The Rape of Lucrecia, and Teatro Réal’s production of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro in Madrid.

Amongst many performances in her latest homecoming tour, Alexandra notably makes her long-awaited Sydney Opera House debut in recital with pianist Konstantin Shamray on 20 August. She also stars in a new production of Poulenc’s La voix humaine for Opera Queensland and Brisbane Festival in September.
