On joining the Schulich School of Music:
“It truly humbles me to know that I have been asked to come back as a guide this time, and I understand the very important and delicate responsibility of being one. I want to be helpful, and I want to inspire my students, and share with them the fire that has been feeding me through my singing career. I look forward to working with my colleagues, learning from them, sharing ideas, to fun projects and exchanges that will benefit of our students.”
