2002-12-18 Dealing with the pain of bereavement

"I don't wanna achieve immortality through my work, I wanna achieve it by not dying." (Woody Allen). Everyone experiences the loss of a loved one.

2002-11-06 Head-wrecking agony of performing audition

"Thank you Mr Nelson, that is the best singing we've had all day, but unfortunately you are too large for the role." During my years in London as an opera and concert singer, I endured countless auditions, and on this occasion they just didn't want a 19 stone Lensky in their "Eugene Onegin".
