Musical Director Stella Voce
Hayley is delighted to have accepted the role of director for Stella Voce and is passionate about supporting Brisbane's vibrant choral community. She began her choral career like most in her primary school children's choir, before being selected to participate in numerous community choirs and workshops. Hayley showed promise as a cellist before choosing the path of music theatre at the Central Queensland Conservatorium, where she completed her Bachelor of Music (Music Theatre). Hayley went on to study various short term music theatre courses, including a rigorous twelve month full time dance course at Theatre & Dance. In 2014 she spent six months touring regional Queensland in the solo puppet show Grandad's Place, bringing live theatre to children in remote communities. In 2015 she completed her Graduate Diploma in Education (Secondary) specialising in choral music, and in the same year was invited to join the Brisbane Chamber Choir. Hayley is keen to further her professional development as a choral director and is in the process of completing her Australian Kodaly Certificate. She is currently senior choral director at Bardon State School, as well as a classroom teacher of music, dance and drama. Hayley's approach to choral music is one of dedication, inclusion and fun, where all singers are encouraged to develop healthy singing technique and unlock their musical potential.
