I think of success for me as simply knowing that my music has made a difference in someone else’s life. If I can impact someone emotionally and make them feel something, I believe that is massive success
the power of being able to move people with your music, to transport them to a different place, is incredible
the more I can engage with audiences, and ideally introduce them to more obscure repertoire, the more successful I feel
Stay true to yourself, and enjoy the music…it seems like something so simple, but it’s not to be taken for granted
The biggest challenge came at the very beginning – to stay true to my technique and my natural voice, no matter what the greats of the opera business were saying when I just started out.
Never stop learning and trying out new ideas. Slowing down is a luxury that we, people involved in arts, simply cannot afford.
