ROSEMARY COCKLIN

SOPRANO

Ever since she got her first big break singing the solo line, shared with her sister, in ‘Day-O’ at the age of 12 (thanks to the boy who was actually chosen to sing it having pulled out), Rosemary has been obsessed with all things sung.

She is a performer and educator who is passionate about opening the world of classical music up to all. Currently Rosemary is completing her Honours year of the Bachelor of Music at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, having graduated with the Bachelor degree in 2016.

She was a finalist in the 2016 National Liederfest, where she received the Merlyn Quaife award.

Rosemary was also an inaugural recipient of a Melbourne Bach Choir Choral Scholarship in the same year.

Her previous performance experience includes lead roles in Iolanthe, Hello, Dolly!, The Threepenny Opera, The Secret Garden and The Little Shop Of Horrors. Currently she is part of Opera Scholars Australia, having joined in April of this year.

When she's not performing, Rosemary is an engaged and enthusiastic private piano and singing teacher. Over the summer of 2016-17, she delved for the first time into musical direction with The Boilerhouse Theatre Co., where she directed a cast of 22 in the full-scale youth musical ‘Haphazardly Ever After’.

She will be making her opera debut with Victorian Youth Opera’s production of ‘The Second Hurricane’ in October of this year.
