The Emerging Project
My name is Samantha Pickett. I was born and raised in Kitchener, ON but I have spent the last two years living in Montreal, QC, completing my Master's of Voice & Opera studies at McGill University. My new home is Toronto, ON. I'm an opera singer; a dramatic soprano-in-waiting. To put it simply, performing is my life's calling. I have always had a passion for music and telling stories. I have been singing, dancing and proclaiming the world's narratives since I was a toddler. I want to share the triumphs and struggles of myself and my colleagues as we attempt to have our voices heard, not only within the operatic world. I write blog posts, articles, and make videos about the journeys we take as artists from first discovering our talent, to making a living from it. This, my friends, is The Emerging Project.
