    Episode 052 - Lucia Lucas - Adding Depth to Villains

    On todays episode, we interview world renown baritone singer, Lucia Lucas. We talk with her about her life, how she got into opera, studying french horn, and how being a transgender opera singer has added more depth to her portrayals of some of the greatest villains such as Don Giovanni. She also has some inspiring words for anyone feeling like they can’t be their true selves and the freedom they will have once they have had personal acceptance first.

    Today we have the absolute pleasure and honor of talking to rising classical music star composer, Jimmy Lopez. We discuss his humble beginnings in Lima, Peru, his education in Finland and California, and his advice for composers that want to have performances of their music but are finding many doors closed in their faces. We also talk about how he found his own voice while thousands of miles away from home.

    Episode 048 - Alex Millar - Self Made is a Toxic Myth

    Episode 048 - Alex Millar - Self Made is a Toxic Myth

    We are back with another amazing episode and inspiring interview with the Tik Tok star and core figure to the band Vattica, Alex Millar. Today we talk to Alex about life, music, and Tik Tok video success. Alex is best known for the segment, Self Made is a Toxic Myth, where Alex debunks the American myth that if you work hard enough you will make it to the top of the music world by yourself. Alex is inspiring, and truly gets Hillary and I going about helping out our musical world and treating it more like a community rather than a "boys club". We hope you enjoy the episode and remember to reach back for someone that wants to also succeed in their field.
