Paul Grant

Baritone, Samling Artist Programme: 2019

A wonderful week and opportunity to meet and work with such great people and artists. Whilst everyone has their own vocabulary and different ways of describing ideas, you realise that they are all working towards the same goal of helping you express yourself in the clearest and simplest way possible. I am so grateful for my time at Samling.
