Opportunities such as singing Ravel’s Shéhérazade with Maestro Diego Masson and the Trinity Laban Symphony Orchestra, singing second Lady in Magic Flute workshops with Simon McBurney, and creating opera in CoLab workshops with Stephen McNeff, coupled with the solid technique and artistry that I learnt whilst at Trinity Laban, have all helped prepare me for life after college.Erika Mädi Jones
