Doretta Balkizas


Violin- Opening BRahms concerto

Doretta's performance of the 2nd movement of the Brahms Violin Concerto is the opening scene of "Mrs Carey's Concert". She was 16 at the time. This was filmed during the 2007 Biennial MLC Opera House Concert and was part of the inspiration to go behind the scenes and document the process that went into delivering such a moment- for the audience and the musicians.

Doretta finished at MLC half way through the shoot and went on to start a Bachelor of Music  at the Sydney Conservatorium majoring in Classical Music performance. She has been a long time student of Alice Watten.

In June of 2011 she will be touring England and France in a clarinet and piano trio.
