Video interview with Jeannette Aster
"Singing in Europe is an ultimate dream….attending the program at La Roche D'Hys was an experience that has helped propel me forward and find the confidence within to go out and do it! The excellent professional coaches and conductors I worked with, helped me hone in on what I should present in European auditions, to understand how the system works and what to expect. The individual attention provided by each faculty member covered every area in the music business..."
