Eliza Bourgault - Musician

Music to transform the world 

Bio

Eliza began playing piano at the age of four and picked up the harp in high school. She was a music scholarship student at Churchlands Senior High School, then went on to complete a Bachelor of Arts, doing a double major in music at the University of Western Australia, where she was the recipient of a number of prizes and scholarships.


Eliza has been freelancing in Perth ever since graduating from university in 2016. As a freelance performer, she is regularly booked for both private and public events, including weddings, funerals and corporate events. She has also performed with the Perth Symphony Orchestra and community orchestras. Eliza also performed four concerts as part of the FRINGE Festival in 2018.


A keen singer, Eliza currently sings with the West Australian Chamber Choir, where she is also the soprano section leader. Every few Sundays she also joins the Chapel choir to sing at church services.


Eliza is currently studying a Graduate Diploma of Community Development, and is working towards a qualification in harp therapy. In the future she plans on combining her skills and knowledge to transform the world with music.
