Over the April school holidays, two of Melbourne’s finest accompanists passed away.




Janet Perkins

Janet Perkins was NBCA’s accompanist during the 1980s and toured to a number of destinations including Japan. She also accompanied at many eisteddfods in Melbourne and beyond, encouraging many young aspiring musicians.

Both of these outstanding musicians will be greatly missed.
