Songbird returns to home nest

Mirusia - Australia's Songbird.

Mirusia is known to millions around the world as the ‘Angel of Australia’ – the name given to her by the famous Dutch violinist, André Rieu and, in February, the international Soprano returns home for a show on her home turf at Redlands on 18 February.

She will be just back from an extensive European headlining tour to debut her stunning new concert.

Affectionately dubbed as “Australia’s Songbird” by 3AW’s Denis Walter, Mirusia will sing songs from her illustrious career including classical favourites, Broadway musical hits, new original music and songs she has performed together with André Rieu on his global spectaculars over the years.

She will also bring with her some of Australia’s finest musicians, including special guest JD Smith from The Ten Tenors.

“I am so excited to return to Australia from touring in Europe in December, and it’s only fitting that I start my year off performing for my own home crowd at Redlands,” Mirusia said.

“This concert will feature my most requested songs and also some new surprises.”

Her shows on her recent ‘Songbird’ tour have had audiences describing her performance as “stunning”, “fabulous”, and “Divine”.

ABC’s David Prior describing her as “a once in a generation voice.”

Melbourne-based singer/songwriter, JD Smith, has been touring as a member of the international vocal group The Ten Tenors since 2015.

With an indigenous heritage, JD has shifted his focus to releasing his debut album titled “Soul Searchin’” – produced by Michael Cristiano (The Seekers, Gene Pitney).

With what critics describe as the voice of an angel and humour from Down Under, she has won the hearts of millions globally.

This is Mirusia’s annual hometown concert and an unforgettable concert experience not to be missed! Saturday, 18 February – 7.30pm Redland Performing Arts Centre 2-16 Middle Street, Cleveland, QLD 4163 www.rpac.com.au | (07) 3829 8131
