Mike and Christine Leah
Christine is a classical percussionist and pianist, with a special talent for the Concert Marimba which she loves as much as her Grand Piano. She was educated in UK at one of the Royal Schools of Music. She went straight into teaching and headed her first Music Department at the age of 21! She had a successful career at both public and private schools in UK and latterly Hong Kong.
Since coming to Zengarra she has founded two choirs as well as really being able to concentrate more on performing. See her performance diary. She has also revealed her other talent which is in the kitchen, and has been recognised by the Queensland Times as being as good as any Naked Chef!
Mike has been a Deck Officer in the British Merchant Navy, Managing Director of one of Europe’s larger laundry companies, and then as third career a Management Lecturer. He now farms Zengarra's 75 acres, producing as much as possible of the fresh fruit and vegetables that Christine cooks. He has also undertaken, with great determination, the arduous task of selecting and building up the extensive wine cellar that Zengarra now boasts!
