Thank you so much Tony Kellen for your comment! I just put up my website so I have a lot of work to do, including updating my blog, which you have inspired me to take the time to do today! It was such an incredible weekend, competing for the first time in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions! I was so grateful to receive the award and cannot wait to participate again next year! I also participated in a masterclass with Greer Grimsley on Sunday, and it was truly life-changing.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving I would like to express how thankful I am to have had this opportunity, and for the family and friends in my life who have continued to support this once awkward music kid to achieve her operatic dreams!
