In Conversation with Lyndon Terracini

Bronwyn Bishop

July 6, 2021

The Honourable Bronwyn Bishop AO is known to Australians as a veteran of politics, but in this interview with our Artistic Director, Lyndon Terracini, she reveals her artistic side. When Bishop was growing up, her mother was a dramatic operatic soprano, who taught her how to sing. Bishop recalls that she made her professional singing debut at the age of eight and has even performed a few duets with former Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

She also shares stories from her time in Australian politics, as the longest-serving female member of the House of Representatives, and explains the role music has played in her career.
