This is Liz.
Liz is an awesome musician and a fantastic person. She has been my friend since I first came to Austria and she has provided me with some of the best support, love and positive energy that I have ever had the pleasure of receiving!
Liz has been through some quite dramatic things and only 2 years ago nearly lost her life to a blood clot in her lung. Far from being depressed or scared though, what did Liz do? She picked up her flute for the first time in 21 years and started to follow her dream of being a professional musician in Vienna.
Now Liz was already a professional flutist in Brasil, where she was born, but started teaching English and forgot all about her musical roots for a long time.
She is multi-talented and plays a whole range of instruments, as well as being a bright, sunny and wonderful person!
Coming through this illness has made her so strong and I'm delighted to announce that Liz has finally realised her dream of setting up a Choro group here in Vienna and will be performing Liz Pereira & Brasil Universalis - Viena visita o Rio de Janeiro on the 19th May at the KIP in Vienna (Biberstr. 2 Vienna, Austria). http://www.kip.co.at
