| Paddy McDonand- Australia, S.O.U.L. 2011 |
After S.O.U.L. 2011, Paddy spent a month in Europe improving his Italian skills, lapping up European culture, and making and visiting friends in Italy and Switzerland. Paddy has since returned to his studies in Politics, Sociology and Italian at the University of Melbourne, whilst studying and teaching voice part-time, playing the odd game of Quidditch, and getting involved in choirs and theatre around Melbourne and Victoria. He is extremely excited about introducing all the wonderful music he discovered during S.O.U.L. to Australian audiences, and would love to bring the tour 'Down Under' in the future. Whilst happy to be home, S.O.U.L. has definitely helped him catch the travel bug, and he can't wait to jump on another plane and visit the amazing people he met during the tour!
