She has been associated with most of the major universities and choirs in Australia. Piroska prepared and conducted many of the large choral works with orchestra and participated in many grand productions including the opera Renard by Stravinsky, the Symphony of a Thousand by Mahler, the 2000 Olympics Arts Festival in Sydney and the Festival of Voices in Tasmania. Piroska lives in Melbourne and works as a freelance conductor and music teacher, songwriter and writer.
Piroska has been included in the 2000 Outstanding Musicians of the 20th Century and the One Thousand Great Intellectuals by the International Biographical Centre, Cambridge.
In 2005 her life has totally changed while worked at the Festival of Voices in Tasmania. One night she woke up in her hotel room and her head was buzzing with beautiful music that had to be written down but was kept private. She started to compose, listened to music differently than in 2011 an opportunity came up to go back to study Contemporary Music Composition, Songwriting & Production. It was an incredible experience to explore new fields and be a 'beginner' again! Don't forget to check out her three albums on Amazon!
Then in 2012 with the Kindle revolution a new possibility and future opened up in front of her. Self-publishing made the impossible possible! She became passionate about writing overnight. She just need to keep improving her English and hope that more and more migrants and refugees will have the chance to have their voices heard through books, TV, Radio, Theatre and Musical Productions and Films!
