In episode 3, Birthday Girl Rachel Krehm and Aria Umezawa talk about:
• Almost meeting at McGill University
• Forming an opera company during a six-hour road trip
• Throwing out the opera rule book, and adding beer
Rachel and Aria are the founders and directors of Opera5, an independent opera company in Toronto that’s hooking a new generation with its immersive live productions and YouTube high jinks.
Willful is the web series that tracks how artists and creative entrepreneurs work, thrive and survive. We interview one artist a week, then post five three-minute snack films from that interview on YouTube every day.
