Music I Am #6 – Laura Strickling, soprano

The moment when you knew you wanted to be a musician:

When I sang my first solo in the church Christmas pageant at the age of 5

An important skill for a career in music that does not have anything to do with an instrument or making music:

Organization, Administration, Networking (Basically, business skills)

Two ways you stay motivated:

(1) Dreaming up new projects and devising ways to accomplish them (2) Knowing that I am working hard and doing my job to the best of my ability – putting in the hours to make that a reality.

Latest album or recording project:

The 40@40 Project – Coming on the Bright Shiny Things label in Feb (?) 2023







4a.     What inspired it:

A desire to be a part of making the future of art song bright by commissioning new works.

4b.     Who’s on it:

Myself and pianist Daniel Schlosberg, performing songs by 20 Composers

How do you discover new music?

Social Media. Attending my colleague’s concerts.

One living and one dead musician that deserves more attention:

Juhi Bansal (living) and…I dunno! 🙂
