Q:  When did you start studying voice? Where are you studying now?

A:  I started singing in the Hong Kong Children’s Choir when I was 10 and began voice lessons when I was 13. I’m going into my final year at the University of Calgary in September. 

As a singer at an early stage, I’m not sure which kind of repertoires suits and interests me the most, there’s still a lot out there I would love to learn and explore.

Q: What has been your onstage experience or role that has been the most meaningful, exciting or successful for you? What do you long to do next?

A:  Messiah Debut Singer – My first professional gig and my first time singing with Baroque orchestra. I wish one day I could perform an oratorio on my own…. some Haydn or Bach would also be nice. 🙂

Q:  Who is your biggest inspiration in the opera world?

A:  “Alex Tam, Laura Hynes – my teachers in HK and Calgary.”

Q:  Who is your biggest inspiration in the non-opera world?

A:  “Alex Tam, a teacher and mentor of mine who has been watching me grow as both me as a singer and the non-musician side of me for so many years. “I’m very anxious from time to time, but I chose to put it down, and go with the flow, because I know I simply can’t change everything. Take it as it is.” He completely changes the way I face challenges and view life as an artist.”
