Gippsland Opera Company:

Artistic Director Andrea Ford started Gippsland Opera, when Andrea & Keith moved to East Gippsland in 2009.

 After many years of running events, directing opera and music theatre, the contacts made from; singers, musicians, marketing, costumes, lighting, sound, staging, was something Andrea wanted to continue with by bringing to the region, the benefits, whether it is community enjoyment of the Arts which is made accessible, or the other obvious advantages derived from events  an increase in tourism, which helps with any regions economy. 

Something else both Andrea & Keith wanted to continue with, is providing  young classical singers  the opportunity of gaining experience and networking with the more seasoned performer.
