During her time studying for a Bachelor of Music (Jazz) and ANU, Tracy has the great fortune to be in the ANU Vocal Group under the tutelage of the indomitable jazz singer, Ms Gery Scott. It was through the membership of the group Tracy was introduced to the work of famous vocal groups such as The New YorkVoices, The Real Group, Manhattan Transfer, Singers Unlimited and Australia’s very own, The Idea of North.
This newly discovered passion for vocal harmony led Tracy to become musical director to Canberra choirssuch as “The Strange Weather Gospel Choir” and the “Music4You Jazz Choir”. After returning to her hometown of Brisbane, Tracy studied Vocal Pedagogy at the Qld Conservatorium of Music and started a Redcliffecommunity choir “Multitude”. After 5 years of conducting Multitude, Tracy moved on to small groups for special occasions such as weddings and Christmas carols while also conducting various school choirs.
Tracy brings a wealth of experience to inversion – she has taught hundreds of students in private singing lessons, run numerous vocal workshops and adjudicated many different kinds of singing competitions. Tracy looks forward to sharing her love of harmony singing with the members of Inversion!
