Monday, May 06, 2019

GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- “According to Miranda, her path to pursue opera has not always been easy. When she attended SF State in her undergraduate years, she mostly sang mezzo soprano. She felt as though she would be singing mezzo soprano for the rest of her life, but things changed when she was 22 years old due to her hormones, body and voice changing. Miranda reluctantly took on a soprano range, but grew to love it with the encouragement of instructors.

“‘It was with the help of the instructors that I’ve had over the last couple years that have pushed me to accept that I’m something that I wasn’t before,’ Miranda said. ‘I have evolved in my voice, but also just as a person because it’s hard to let go of something that you hold very close to yourself.’”
