Juliana Kay (BA, MTeach) is a teacher, conductor and composer with a lifelong interest in choirs and choral music. She teaches music at Canterbury Girls’ Secondary College, and is the assistant conductor of the internationally-touring youth choir Exaudi.

Her compositions have been performed by Exaudi, Choral Edge and the Australian Boys Choir training groups, and she is a represented artist on SingScore.
