At the age of 55, after a career in music and drama education spanning 30 years, Judith decided to form a girls choir which would have an emphasis not only on singing but also dance and presentation. Her aim was to create a choir known for its unique Australian sound (as distinguished from English Cathedral). She envisaged a national choir, with a common repertoire and polished choreography.
It has always been Judith’s dream to provide performing arts opportunities to students all over Australia and through ASPA Education this dream has been realised.
Judith was honoured on Australia Day 2004, when she was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for services to music, particularly through the Australian Girls Choir.
