There are some composers that I immediately connect with. I can’t explain it, but some composers I know I will enjoy no matter what.
I do feel that classical music is growing, and during the pandemic people lost out on live music and now want it back in their lives.
Sing as much as you want, for the audience, live, share your art with the audience, with your colleagues, create and never stop searching for the means of expressing yourself.
If my audience is moved, entertained, challenged, provoked, consoled, informed, inspired – or any combination of the above – then I feel I have been successful in doing my job.
One of the biggest challenges we face as performers is to find our unique and authentic artistic voice.
