Baritone, Samling Artist Programme: 2016

My time at the Samling Artist Programme enriched all factors of my work as a performing vocal artist. It forced to me to challenge aspects of my craft, whilst reaffirming others. Having the insight of three different artists (Patricia Macmahon, Angelika Kirchschlager and Simon Lepper) who all focused on different aspects of my performance gave me tools to prevent fixating on difficult moments that would have otherwise hindered me. It was also a pleasure to sing alongside five fantastic young singers, all at different stages of their careers, who were so encouraging of each other’s development.
