Sold Out is a sign that seems to have been seen often across posters advertising the songbird known as the Angel of Australia, the lovely soprano Mirusia, as she continues her stunning This Time Tomorrow Tour around her homeland.
Success for any singer is not achieved without discipline and long hours on the road and in the studio.
Creating and crafting a career in music not only requires the courage of your convictions, but also the passion to pursue your dreams and to persist in the face of many odds in doing so.
It’s wonderful Australian audiences who appreciate excellence in the performance arts, are now as this tour continues, standing at the shoulder of a great Australian talent.
They are showing support for Mirusia, who is internationally acclaimed and it would be the icing on the cake to see the completely SOLD out sign on Hamer Hall. From what I understand it is a possibility. So be quick if you wish to hear the soprano who has done ‘the hard yards’ of classical training and practiced her scales, as Mirusia presents This Time Tomorrow in concert.
It will be a superlative experience
” …she is able to sing beautifully in both classical and musical theatre styles with a seemingly perfect technique and great sense of dramatic flair”.
She thought Mirusia’s voice was truly superb and phoned me the morning she filed her story to tell me first hand how dazzled she had been by the beauty of her singing.
Meldi who has a Master of Music Degree and used to play with the Sydney Symphony, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Australian Opera & Ballet Orchestra and more, knows her stuff. She confessed it was the first time she had heard Mirusia sing and was completely blown away, not understanding how she did not know of her.
Indeed, I once called Mirusia Australia’s best kept secret.
When she released her album This Time Tomorrow in May 2016, both the CD and the DVD, which had been filmed in the Netherlands, charted in the Top 10 on both the Dutch and Australian Charts.

This lovely young woman born in 1985 has reached her third decade and still has so much of her career before her. It seems to me that her glorious voice is rounding out so beautifully now, full of warmth and depth and so hearing her sing live again will indeed be a privilege.
Am hoping in Melbourne she might sing Don’t Cry for Me Argentina – her wondrous version accompanied by André Rieu so brilliantly performed at the coronation concert of the King of the Netherlands in 2014.
Then there is the lovely special song Mio Angelo, written by André Rieu with lyrics by his wife Marjorie. Mirusia appears on his Roman Holiday album as feature soloist, singing this wonderful memento of when she was married in 2015 to her own Prince Charming,
Mirusia is the only classical artist to receive such an award and has now made Australia her home base and giving of her time to helping others by taking on the role of producer.
She says “Can you imagine a life without music? I can’t”.
