When did you first start singing/singing in choirs?
MG - I started when I was 6 years old and I haven’t stopped since!
LS - I’ve been singing for as long as I can remember and have the embarrassing family home videos to prove it! But my first introduction to choral singing was at the age of 11 with the Cantaré Children's Choir.
What are your other passions/hobbies/interests? What inspires you?
EP - My other interests include cooking, attending concerts, reading, and cuddling with my goofy mini schnauzer. Spending time with friends and family is also very important to me.
LS - Before I became a full-time student, I was an early childhood educator. The children I worked with lit a spark in me. They showed me that I loved advocating for the more vulnerable. I loved being a source of stability, comfort, and protection for the children who may not have found it elsewhere. Those little muffins have inspired me to be the best version of myself, and to be someone on which one can rely. I am also a huge advocate for mental health awareness and de-stigmatization.
How did you learn about NYCC and/or what made you decide to audition?
PW - I spent two summers as a part of the Ontario Youth Choir and learned about NYCC through Choirs Ontario. After the amazing experiences I had with OYC I knew NYCC was something I had to do in the future.
EP - I first heard about NYCC when I did the Ontario Youth Choir (OYC) and they were holding auditions during the program. I loved OYC, and this sounded like the 2.0 version, so I figured it had to be awesome.
What are you most excited about for NYCC 2022?
KU - I'm really looking forward to getting to make music in a group, in person, and share that with audiences after a long 2 years of being apart.
PW - I am most excited to get to know the choir and everyone involved! Working with a group of people who have the same passion for singing and choral music that I do is something really special and I cannot wait to collaborate with them on such incredible repertoire. I can't wait to see everyone in Ottawa!
