When did you first start singing/singing in choirs?
OD - The first choir I sang with was my high school choir in the eighth grade. After that, I joined the Coastal Sound Youth Choir directed by Carrie Tennant and it was such a good experience that I've been singing in choirs ever since.
RD - When I was nine years old, my music teacher volunteered me for a children's choir festival - the rest is history!
What are your other passions/hobbies/interests? What inspires you?
WA - I enjoy cooking, baking, reading, pondering and having a good laugh with my roommates. I also have two darling plants at home to take care of! Aside from music, I truly love science and learning about why things are the way they are. I am aspiring to become a doctor!
RD - My family immigrated to the U.S. from the Caribbean, so I grew up speaking Spanish and continue to love studying other foreign languages. I'm constantly inspired by artists across the world who champion new and innovative work, from fellow conductors like Donald Nally to designers like Iris van Herpen and composers like Dale Trumbore.
How did you learn about NYCC and/or what made you decide to audition?
WA - I first heard of the NYCC through the NSYC, and then my voice teacher urged me towards it in 2020, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic. Now that it has returned, I jumped at the opportunity right away!
RD - I first heard NYCC recordings on CBC and loved the sound and musicality of the performances!
What are you most excited about for NYCC 2022?
OD - I'm most excited about performing interesting repertoire at a really high level, and getting to meet singers from choral communities all over Canada.
WA - After a near two-year hiatus from choral singing, I don’t see what there isn’t to be excited about! Challenging repertoire, community, a united passion for singing… What more could you ask for?
