Soprano Sally Wilson has been actively performing in Europe, the UK, the USA, Asia and Australia for the past twenty years in opera, concert, chamber music and recital. She was a soloist member of the ensemble of the Theater Freiburg from 2010 until 2013, just before returning to Australia to live.

Ms Wilson returned from Munich in June 2014, after performing the role of Frau, which was composed specifically for her, with the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra (conducted by Peter Tilling) and Ensemble Recherche, in the world premiere of Hector Parra's "Das Geopferte Leben".
Career highlights include concerts with the Chicago Symphony Chamber Players at the Ravinia Festival, her concert debut in the Konzerthaus Berlin, concerts at the Aldeburgh Festival as well as Wigmore Hall, Bernstein's "Jeremiah" with the Polish National Radio Symphony in Katowice, a concert for royalty in Aarhus, Handel's Sesto with The Washington Opera, her debuts at the Puccini Festival and with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, her debut in 2013 with Oper Bonn, her role debut as Carmen in Friedrichshafen, Switzerland, and her performance of the role of Ottavia in "L'Incoronazione di Poppea" with The Victorian Opera, for which she was nominated for a Greenroom Award.
