“When I was in the Young Artist Program at the Met, I asked Bryn Terfel why he seemed so cool and calm before going out onstage, and he said, ‘Well, I sing better if I’m not nervous.’ Makes sense, right? So one year I gave up fear for Lent. I just decided that I’m not going to be afraid anymore. It’s hard to do, but I realized that fear is something that exists only in the future. In the past, it exists as regret. But in the present, it doesn’t exist. You’re only worried about what will happen. So I try to do what I’m supposed to do, practice the things I’m supposed to practice, be as honest as I can and approach things with an intent that is in accord with nature, as my voice teacher would have said. And then I do it.”
