Lidia Stojanovski, Soprano
Lidia describes herself as a very spiritual person, and joining the St Mary’s Singers has fulfilled a need ‘’to express my praise to God in song, and also because I love singing and music’’.
Lidia, who is a communications professional living in the eastern suburbs, is an accomplished harpist. She also composes music and writes poetry. She loves all sorts of musical genres from Abba and Elton John, the poetry of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen to Mozart and Bach.
‘’For me music is about reflecting what’s inside the heart and soul – giving me a sound of truth and beauty,’’ she says.
She comes from a musical family and says many of her relatives on her mother’s ’s side in Macedonia are well-known musicians.
Lidia had never sung in a choir before joining the Singers in June 2013.
‘’I wanted an outlet where I could sing regularly in worship and also improve as a singer. The choir has definitely answered all those needs,’’ she says.
