Samling is the most amazing opportunity for singers to recenter themselves, to gain confidence, to explore opera and song repertoire, to be creative with no merit other than to improve generally and to connect with music in an ideal environment. I’m extremely grateful for this gift of a week- I will remember it forever and it really has been a turning point in my life.
