TALENTED soprano Mirusia Louwerse shot to fame when world-renowned conductor Andre Rieu chose her as his star singer in 2007.

The young Aussie has now returned home from numerous overseas tours with Rieu, and will perform in Ipswich this weekend to kick off her own tour.

As part of her Home Tour 2012, Mirusia will sing beautiful melodies, backed by the Vocal Manoeuvres choir and Mirusia's own Salon Orchestra.

She will also be accompanied by special guest artist Gregory Moore.

The Home Tour will mark the beginning of Brisbane-born Mirusia's solo career, which will be bolstered by her success collaborating with Rieu.

More proof of Mirusia's talent is the 7.5 million Youtube hits for her rendition of Schubert's Ave Maria, as well as her status as the youngest winner of the Dame Joan Sutherland Opera Award.

Her 2008 collaboration CD with Andre Rieu, titled Waltzing Matilda, won her a platinum record award.

Mirusia will perform a matinee concert at the Ipswich Civic Centre from 2pm.

She will sing melodies including Ave Maria, Botany Bay and I Still Call Australia Home, as well as selections of operatic arias.

Mirusia will conclude the concert with her own composition, Forever Shine.

Tickets cost $70 for adults and $65 concession, with VIP tickets available for $100.

To book, phone 3810 6100 or see ipswichciviccentre.com.au.
