Greer Schatz, MYOpera’s fantastic summer volunteer!

  1. Where are you from? I’m from Etobicoke.

  2. Where do you currently live? I’m currently living in Waterloo studying Voice Music and Music Education at Wilfrid Laurier University.

  3. How did you find out about MYOpera? I work as a Residence Life Don at Laurier, and was invited to a leadership summit at which Kate Applin was speaking.  I learned about MYOpera from her session, and after listening to what she did and what the opera company stood for I was hooked!  I asked her if she had any volunteer positions available as soon as the last presentation slide was down.

  4. What’s your favourite opera (to watch/listen to)? Carmen.  The Habenera gets me every time!

  5. What’s your guilty pleasure song (any genre)? There will always be a special place in my heart for Ed Sheeran.  I can’t get his song “Sing” out of my head!

  6. Traveling is always an adventure! What’s your favourite/most memorable travel experience? When I was seventeen I did a student exchange to France for three months, which has been my most adventurous traveling to date. 

  7. Do you have a signature dish/meal that you make? Tell us about it! I love baking, and right now I’m on this really big cannoli kick.  The ricotta and mascarpone filling is my favourite part – I love how I can add whatever flavour I fancy (although merichino cherries and dark chocolate are proving to be the best!).

  8. Singers/Artists are busy people! What’s your favourite snack when you’re on the go? Greek yogurt with honey is my go-to snack for the hustle and bustle of the school year!

Thank you, Greer, for all your work this summer!
