Biography

Australian soprano singer, a pro from the time of her debut in 1949 when she came in third at the Sydney Sun Aria contest. The following year, Bronhill (a name adopted from her place of birth) won the contest and continued her training overseas. While in London, the soprano auditioned for Sadler's Wells and sang in "Marriage of Figaro" and "Die Fledermaus." Her most famed role was in "The Merry Widow" and she made a triumphant return to Australia on 26 June 1960. Bronhill starred in "The Sound of Music" and played in "Robert and Elizabeth" for 19 months in London and 7 months in Melbourne.

She married in 1951. On 5 January 1975, Bronhill helped raise $75,000 for victims of Cyclone Tracy. In 1983, she had a successful re-run of "Sound of Music," followed by "The Pirates of Penzance" in 1984. On 24 January 2005, she died in her sleep in Sydney at age 75.
