3 years with Cantabile

I’ve sung with Cantabile for the past three years, and it has helped me grow enormously both as a person and as a singer. By having time for discussions about the piece and its history, we not only have the tools to sing skillfully but also knowledge about the circumstances under which it was written, helping us better understand and interpret the pieces. Furthermore, working with various composers has given me a deeper understanding of the thought process that goes into the pieces. The diverse repertoire we get to learn each year broadens our perspectives as well. I am grateful for the opportunities, life skills, and memories that Cantabile has given me.
