MASTER CLASS WITH JOYCE DIDONATO
This is a Masterclass I took part in, in October of 2013, with Grammy Award winning Mezzo-Soprano Joyce DiDonato at the Juilliard School, while completing my Masters Degree. To say I was nervous is an understatement. Here i was, about to walk on to the stage and sing for one of the most well known opera singers in the world. I sang in the Masterclass with four of my colleagues. Sensing the nerves, Mrs. DiDonato came backstage beforehand to meet us and help calm us down a bit. She shook all of our hands and said “oh just take a breath, I think I’m more nervous than you are!” She was so supportive and kind. This is definitely one of the most rewarding musical experiences I’ve had to date.
