Christianne´s latest steps of career.
Since the International Belvedere Competition, I was awarded First Prize at the Concours International de Chant Lyrique de Canari (Corsica). I also won First Prize and many scholarships from Jeunes Ambassadeurs Lyriques (Montreal). I am currently part of the Académie at Opéra Comique de Paris and will be performing in Lakmé raconté aux enfants (January) and Lecocq's Ali Baba (May). 

Christianne: Me in 5 years.
Projects includes a chamber music recital in Yellowknife and a recital tour in China in 2015. I am hoping to work more and more in Europe as well as in my native Canada. Dream roles in this next step of my career include Charlotte, Oktavian, Dorabella, Nicklausse, Suzuki and many more.

Jie Yin: Me in 5 years.
First of all I have to finish my Doctoral studying, and hopefully I will receive my PhD by next summer. Secondly, I wish I will be considered by a good agency or opera house which has really long vision in seeing things, so that I will be able to start my career and share my love and thoughts for music with others. Eventually, the most important thing is to make my life colorful, and I believe opera is the perfect platform for me to share. God gave each one of us an unique gift, and the reason isn’t for any of us to keep that gift, the reason of its is to share with others.
