Director of NZ Member Services, APRA AMCOS
Victoria is a composer, performer and producer of music – and is also the Director of NZ Member Services at APRA AMCOS.
Victoria composes contemporary classical music as well as music for film, television and theatre. She plays keyboards, sings and arranges orchestral music for other artists. Having worked as a musical director and composer for large scale events and television programs and also acted as an advisor and assessor for local and national arts organisations, Victoria brings together a broad range or experience and mastery.
Because New Zealand is a small place, the music industry is an intimate environment and most of the people working in it know, respect and support each other. The projects she works on are usually low budget ones, but that gives us the opportunity to try things that people risking large sums of other people's money might not.
Victoria has worked with a wide range of New Zealand musicians and artists. Her classical work has been commissioned, performed and/or recorded by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the Auckland Philharmonia, the New Zealand String Quartet, NZTrio, Stroma, Michael Houstoun and Stephen de Pledge. In the popular music world, Victoria has collaborated with artists like Neil Finn, Finn Andrews, Don McGlashan, Anika Moa, SJD and Shapeshifter. As a film composer Victoria has worked with Peter Jackson, Jonathan King and Robert Sarkies among some others.
