Clare Hood, GWNZ Awardee 2018. June Presentation

Opera: Freelancing and Everything in Between

Following a delightful vocal performance Clare talked to members about the obstacles singers and musicians faced; the repeated rejections, financial challenges of freelancing, and the fear that the vision they have dedicated their lives to will not be realised.

Stretching themselves emotionally, physically, risking criticism and judgement is worth every moment, she told us, to touch anothers heart and feel the magic.
That is the reward for the dedication.
