Tracy works with choirs as a conductor, arranger and composer – often on projects that respond to local issues of sustainability, social justice or history. She also leads groups who get together just because they love to sing!
She is currently leading the Bungendore Community Choir each week on a Monday evening. The choir sings a range of musical styles, and singers of all skill levels are welcome. If you’re interested in coming along, send Tracy a message through her contact page and she will send you more details.
In 2014 Tracy was the choir leader for TTFO (Things That Fall Over), a project about the creativity of older women (among other things) with a script by Peta Murray and music by Peta Williams. From 2013-2014, she was choir leader for the Pyrenees Chorale, a group from Avoca and Beaufort largely made up of senior singers.
Tracy composed some songs in the Illuminated by Fire performance in Ballarat (2010, 2011).
Other highlights including musically directing Dust which was, written and directed by Donna Jackson (Hubcap), with songs composed by Mark Seymour (Hunters and Collectors) and choral arrangements by Tracy. This production toured to Adelaide in April this year where she worked with the fabulous Born on Monday Choir. The show was reviewed by Glam Adelaide:
I found (the music) most engaging. Musically these are not trite songs. They are carefully composed pieces that contain some very fine vocal harmonies, (with) references to Phillip Glass and to Arvo Part.
Tracy also runs workshops on vocal technique with various vocal groups and choirs.
