MOSSMAN-born songstress Samantha Paterson is coming home to perform with Belladiva this Friday night.

Belladiva will see four stunning individual voices combine at The Clink Theatre to perform intricate arrangements of classics from opera to pop. Paterson admitted it would be a special experience to take the stage in Port Douglas.

“I think I’m most excited to visit my hometowns of Port Douglas and Mossman, and have my father and first music teacher see the show,” she said.

“It has been 10 years since I moved away from Far North Queensland, so it’s a really exciting feeling to be going back.

“When I left, I was mainly an instrumentalist who had only done a few singing lessons with my music teacher, so coming back perform as a trained, accomplished singer is very new and different.”

Samantha moved to Brisbane from Mossman to complete her studies and is now pursuing a career in the performing arts. She already has a string of onstage credits and says she’s excited to have joined Belladiva, a long-established operatic quartet.

“I love performing with Belladiva. It’s a group that really embodies all my favourite elements of performing - beautiful harmonies, original arrangements, talented singers, and hard workers,” she said.

It’ll be amazing to connect with some music contacts from around the FNQ community, from old eisteddfod competition buddies to fellow exam takers to long-lost and well-loved teachers!”
