Just returned from Turin, Italy and the International Vocal Competition at the Accademia Voce Della Piemonte. It was an absolute blast, and I am so pleased and humbled to win Second Prize and the President’s Prize after competing with 50 singers from all over the world.
The prize (a concert or role next year as well as some money) also offers me a chance to have a masterclass for free with the president of the academy, Renata Scotto!! It was a great moment meeting her.
I look forward very much to hearing more from the competition and its development over the next few years. Huge congratulations to all of the singers who took part, I was truly blown away by the talent and musicality!
