Debra is the musical director of Bathurst Panorama Chorus. She became director after many years’ experience in other music and educational roles in Sweet Adelines Australia and Sweet Adelines International. Debra has a passion for developing people’s skills and confidence in singing and performance so that they can fully experience the joy of being part of an a cappella chorus. Her rehearsals are fun, educational and full of variety as the chorus works on repertoire that ranges from classic to modern. Debra believes that one of the strengths of Sweet Adelines is the connection with choruses in Australia and around the world. She has been actively involved with the Sweet Adelines organisation at a national and international level in event planning, as a member of the Education Faculty and as Worldwide Moderator for countries wishing to join the Sweet Adelines barbershop community.
