About this playlist

This playlist represents a timeline of my musical upbringing, from my early years in the church, through my years of flute study, my choral and orchestral experience, to the big breaks in my operatic career. It’s music that I listened to repeatedly for years, that helped shape me as a musician by giving me an appreciation for composition, as well as stir deep emotions within me. Even though there’s not much opera on this list, it’s music like this that gave me the tools to be a professional opera singer, a lover, and interpreter with a deep love of all that encompasses this art form, through and through.
