Mary learned to love singing from her family's car confined belting sessions. However, she
found opera when her brother signed her up for an audition at UVAA out of the blue. It was an
audition taking place the very next morning… and Mary didn't know any classical pieces. After a
very stressful evening, Mary managed a decent enough audition to get into the program. Which

was fortunate since it was there that she fell in love with the art form and she's been caught by its
charms ever since.
