-Going into the practise rooms at 9:00pm on a Saturday night and having to WAIT for a practise room. It is so refreshing to be around people who care about perfecting their artform.

-Opera McGill. The program is set up exactly to make us be able to succeed in the business, which is something I would not have expected from a school. Every week we will have an audition class, repertoire class, Tai Chi, Acting class and one-on-one acting. At any time, there might be a ‘surprise visitor’ in our audition class who is someone influential in the opera industry.

-Rediscovering the joy of singing in a choir. I took the last year off of choir, and now that I am being paid to sing as a choir member, it seems like the most beautiful thing to sing with the people that you are learning to be a soloist with. Now, it is not the fact that I am getting paid, but just being made to feel like my time is valuable to the choir in a tangible way is so wonderful. And the people of the church are really special, I am so happy to be at St. Andrew and St. Paul.

-My bike route to get downtown… once I get to Park, it is smooth cruising down Mont Royal through beautiful green Jeanne Mance Park with a great view of the huge buildings of McGill and downtown Montreal. This bike ride never fails to invigorate me.

-Yoga, swimming, Tai Chi, and salsa… I am so active and I feel so good!

Pour répondre à la question : "Est-ce que vous chantez toujours ?"

J'ai appris qu'il y a une différence entre ma voix physique et ma voix au sens large. J'ai maîtrisé ma voix physique - toutes les nuances, les points de rupture ; j'ai appris comment ma voix aime bouger et s'épanouir. Il y a une liberté et une joie dans la pratique de l'utilisation de ma voix de cette manière sur scène. Mais j'avais besoin de quelque chose de plus.
