I am awed by the caliber of instruction that we receive on a regular basis from the faculty of Opera Studio. To watch a master class is a transformative experience. To participate in it is like waking up from a frozen sleep. We were like putty in Rebecca’s hands- and she was able to take lumps of musical clay and fashion our offerings into art. Of course it was a collaborative process- but her way of opening us up and freeing the story within the song was magical. It brings home once again the importance of creating a sanctuary for the creative soul.
