Meet Angela Loh!

Angela is the Managing Producer of Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra. The Camerata aims to empower artists, inspire audiences and enrich communities through music and it just so happens that Angela and Camerata’s Education Manager and Principal Second Violinist, Jonny Ng, were doing just that this past week.

Meeting with the communities ahead of Camerata’s regional tour in June, fingers crossed. You can listen to Angela speak with Jonny about his own journey on this APATA podcast episode – All from the Heart: HERE.

Beginnings

So where did this passion for the arts come from, where did it all begin?

Besides having two creative parents, Angela had an exceptional music teacher who understood that the way to her musical heart was not only through the AMEB, but through the Beatles.

Learning to read and play music in an environment that was fun and interesting and tailored to her needs Angela kept learning piano until the end of high school, finding it to be a place to unwind from the stress of those teenage years.

Where to after school?

From an industry-led education at QUT [Queensland University of Technology] in stage management and technical production, Angela was more that able to step into roles in the corporate sector, musical theatre and opera learning valuable life lessons along the way.

We learn the various roles Angela has had in her career in the performing arts and the mentors that played a big part in forming who she could and would be.

Camerata

With such a diverse background, no matter the role, Angela has been able step up to whatever challenge came along and now at the Camerata she finds herself in a passionate, community-minded, collaborative arts company that she truly loves.

As we step into unprecedented times for the arts and entertainment industry, we discuss the future and resilience of the arts industry and our hopes for the future.
