A graduate of the University of Auckland where she studied with John Rimmer, Dorothy Ker travelled to London in 1992 and completed a PhD in composition at the University of York, studying with Nicola Lefanu and Harrison Birtwistle. Since then, her music has been performed and broadcast around the world.

On the Bridge merges three haunting texts by New Zealand poet Ruth Dallas into a brief vocal study, which at the time of composition suited the composer’s own soprano voice.
