I am very grateful to have had the opportunity of taking part in the excellent Samling Artist Programme. The intensive schedule of masterclasses with distinguished vocal coaches, as well as with one of Britain’s most celebrated actors was a great privilege and substantial benefit. I shall be honoured to be an ambassador for Samling through my work as a singer, and must again say how much I appreciate taking part in this highly esteemed programme. It was a most productive and enjoyable experience.
