I’ve developed a new framework for understanding music’s affective qualities and that’s made me both a better musician and a better person. It’s also opened the door to a whole new understanding of the world around me.Krishan Meepe, Bachelor of Music (Ethnomusicology)
I love the rehearsal process and then performing a season of our shows. A highlight so far is my being cast in the role of Nina in American playwright Mike Posner’s play, ‘Snore’.Dianne Miranda, Bachelor of Fine Arts (Acting)
