Elizabeth-Anne Nixon has been involved with church choirs as chorister, organist or director for the past 40 years. After growing up in Queensland with the inspiration and guidance of wonderful teachers, she began to focus on organ performance towards the end of her undergraduate degree. Her post-graduate studies gave her the opportunity to work with some of Australia and Europe’s leading teachers and performers in the 90s. Since settling in Melbourne with her family, she has divided her professional life between teaching, performing and accompaniment, as well as her liturgical work. Elizabeth-Anne loves working with the St George’s choir and sees the parish choir as an excellent opportunity for cross-generational friendship as well as shared music-making.
