Classical pop soprano, Trisha Crowe, blends the technique and tone of classical music with the songs and performance skills of a modern pop diva. She “literally sparkles on stage” (Canberra Times, 2012) and “knows how to connect with her audience.” (Guy Noble, conductor) Crowe “creates special moments for audiences. Moments filled with emotion, which uplift or tell stories about relationships in new ways.” (ABC Limelight Magazine)

From the age of four, Trisha took dancing and acting lessons appearing in many concerts and plays. After seeing the magical London production of Phantom of the Opera, she started singing lessons with opera star Rita Hunter CBE and her husband John Thomas. She relates, “They nurtured a real love and passion for communicating through music and song. From then on I seriously pursued classical singing.” (ABC Limelight Magazine) She completed a Bachelor of Music (Hons), studying voice with renowned opera diva Rita Hunter and a Bachelor of Arts (Performance).

Her singing has led to many travels throughout the world from her first professional engagement, Masterpiece – The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber (For the President of China in the Great Hall of the People, Beijing, and Shanghai); to Regent’s Park, London, performing in Shakespeare’s Cymbeline, Twelfth Night and the musical HMS Pinafore; and in Australia, Cameron Mackintosh’s Oliver!; Bridie O’Malley – Eureka! directed by Gale Edwards; Yvonne/Naomi Eisen – Sunday in the Park with George (Q Theatre); Kathy – Company directed by Gale Edwards; The Noel Coward Letters; and Nellie Collins – Floyd Collins (Meredith Shaw Pty Ltd).

In 2011, Trisha toured with The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber in Australia, New Zealand and Asia where it was reported “in the crescendo, (of Phantom of the Opera) Crowe produces a note so high and compelling it seems that the ornate fixtures of the Regent should have cracked against its force.” (Melbourne Liveguide) She performed the soprano roles including Love Never Dies and Phantom of the Opera sung by Christine Daae, and also Pie Jesu from Requiem.

Perhaps the most satisfying times in her career have been when singing with orchestras throughout Australia. It was conductor Guy Noble, who first asked her to step onto the Opera House Concert Hall stage and sing with the Sydney Symphony. “When you sing with a large number of extraordinary musicians in the orchestra, “ Crowe says, “your whole body vibrates with the sheer volume of sound.” She has sung with the Sydney Symphony on a number of occasions including, Showstoppers (2006);[2] Songs from the Movies (2008) with other solo artists, Kate Ceberano, Todd McKenney and Anthony Calea [3]where her performance was described as “nothing short of jaw-dropping” (Daily Telegraph); and Best Of Broadway (2010). She has continued to build her concert repertoire with the Tasmanian, Adelaide and Canberra Symphony Orchestras.

Equally important in her life, is her involvement in charity work and music therapy programs including Light The Night (Leukemia Foundation); Hats Off (Equity Fights AIDS); Day Of Difference (Sophie Delezio Foundation); Youth Insearch; Red Cross Charity Ball and together with the Sydney Symphony and MBF, she performed for The Children’s Hospital, Westmead and the Powerhouse Museum. The Olivia Newton-John and Friends Charity Gala (ONJ Cancer and Wellness Centre Appeal) was a special moment for her when Olivia Newton-John joined the audience and gave her a standing ovation; and in a personal note, she wrote “breathtaking.. you really have a beautiful voice. “

Trisha performed with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra in June 2013 for TSO Goes To Broadway with Michael Falzon and conductor Guy Noble[4] She joined the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra to record I Dreamed A Dream: The Hit Songs Of Broadway for ABC Classics, released on 21 June 2013[5], in which she sang:
