Q: When did you start studying voice? Where are you studying now?
A: “I remember taking a single voice lesson when I was about 10 years old and, for whatever reason, not liking it. I gave it a real try in April of 2017, studying with Heather Faris.
Currently, I am studying at the University of Toronto with Mark Daboll.”
Q: What is the best part about starting a new opera?
A: “This will be my first opera ever (!!!!) and I have already learned so much about my voice and my own process of learning a role. I think the best parts of HSOF will be the valuable on-stage experience I will gain as well as the lifelong friendships and connections I hope to make.”
Q: Who is your biggest inspiration in the opera world?
A: “Elina Garanča and Isabel Leonard will forever be my Mezzo inspirations.”
Q: Who is your biggest inspiration in the non-opera world?
A: “My mother, she is the strongest person I know and I try to be like her everyday.”
