How to Become a Professional Opera Singer

In episode 478, I chat with Soula Parassidis and Norman Reinhardt, wonderful couple and professional opera singers.

Listen as they talk about:

  • Their first experience with music

  • Why they chose Opera and why certain people are better for Opera

  • When they decided to pursue professionally and their journey into Opera as a professional

  • Why Norman wanted to stop at one point but kept going

  • How Soula overcame cancer and decided to pursue Opera fully 

  • How they met and became a couple

  • Why there's no one key to success & why your skillset matters so much more than you realize

  • Why you need a team of people to advise you to help build you up

  • Why you need to brand yourself in Opera and more!
