OI: How did you become an opera singer?
SW: I always knew I wanted to perform in some way. When I discovered opera I was instantly mesmerized and I knew that was what I wanted to pursue. Intense training, coaching, and auditioning is never easy, but the rewards are so gratifying.
OI: What is your favorite aria/opera/composer?
SW: I love so many it is hard to choose, but the opera Le Nozze di Figaro holds a special place in my heart.
OI: How have you been preparing for the Region Finals?
SW: Of course practicing, but work at this level goes beyond singing notes and rhythms. It is deeper into character situation and mood. Expressing and communicating a character is key to engaging your audience; and working on the details of the music. I also work regularly with my teacher and coach, both are wonderful and insightful.
