Mirusia Louwerse

Bachelor of Music (Classical Voice)

Mirusia Louwerse is an Australian-Dutch soprano who gained worldwide fame as a soloist with Andre Rieu—the man responsible for turning classical and waltz music into a hugely successful worldwide concert touring act. She studied opera at Queensland Conservatorium and at the age of 21 was announced as the youngest winner ever of the prestigious Dame Joan Sutherland Opera Award. She says her time at Queensland Conservatorium was marked by a feeling that it was finally a place where she fitted in, where she 'made lifelong friends and contacts in the music industry'. 'My dream always was to tour the world, and I am fortunate to say I have followed and lived that dream so far! I am really proud of my achievements in my career, but I am also still learning every day and there is still so much I want to do.'
