Through the uncertainty that surrounds us, I hope you are able to take this time of social distancing to stay healthy. Although everything is a little scary, one thing we know is that Art is always there for us.
Now more than ever, I am grateful for the opportunities that I have had to sing live. Singing the role of Mimì in Canada’s first professional opera livestream was an experience that I will never forget. Tune into Against the Grain and Banff Centre’s co-production of La Bohème by Puccini on YouTube now.
