Soprano Sophie Mohler will graduate from her studies at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music with a Bachelor of Music (Classical voice performance) at the end of 2021. Sophie currently has a grade point average of 82.73 for her past three and a half years of tertiary study, and is also in her first year of a Diploma of Languages, majoring in Germanic studies and taking units in French and Italian. She has recently achieved a high distinction in a university vocal pedagogy subject (the study of teaching). She has had considerable experience working with English, Italian, German, and French vocal repertoire and preparation for AMEB examinations, as well as some experience with Russian, Scandinavian and Spanish repertoire.
In 2021 Sophie was a finalist in the Demant Dreikurs Lieder Competition and a recipient of this undergraduate scholarship. In 2020 she was awarded a PATIM scholarship to assist with her studies in music and in 2018 was awarded the Helen Meyers Scholarship by the Sydney Conservatorium in merit of her performance in her audition and a Sydney Scholars scholarship by the University of Sydney.
In 2018 Sophie returned to Hobart for a solo role in a performance of Messe de Minuit by Charpentier with the Argyle Orchestra and Choir conducted by Simon Reade. Whilst under the tuition of Jane Edwards in Tasmania, Sophie was a member of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra Chorus, gaining valuable experience in a variety of choral repertoire. A highlight of this time was when she was a featured soloist in a public concert with Australian composer, Elena Kats-Chernin.
Sophie is interested in teaching voice students of all ages at beginner level Classical, Contemporary and Musical Theatre genres as well as AMEB theory.
