She’s known to millions around the world as the “Angel of Australia” - the name given to her by the famous Dutch violinist, André Rieu. Brisbane-born soprano Mirusia Louwerse has toured extensively around the globe as star soprano with André Rieu for nearly a decade. She has achieved recognition as an international performer, singing many styles of music including opera, musical theatre, pop and jazz. Mirusia is thrilled to be able to bring the joy of music to aged care residents as an ambassador for the Silver Memories nostalgia broadcast service.
Mirusia has a strong affinity with the aged care sector – her mother worked in aged care, and she would ask the young Mirusia to sing for the residents. So, from a very early age Mirusia experienced the positive power of music on the aged. Mirusia is very excited to be part of the Silver Memories community and has offered her assistance as a volunteer in our Silver Memories studio. In November, Mirusia will perform at various aged care facilities a 60-minute live concert showcasing music from the past including a special private performance at 4MBS Classic FM. Gary Thorpe OAM, General Manager for Silver Memories said, “What a thrill it will be for residents to have Mirusia visit their aged care home and perform live for them – most will only have seen her in André Rieu concerts on their TV.
