After captivating audiences with her performance of Sibelius songs during the prestigious Mirjam Helin Competition in Finland, Megan Moore sits down for a Q&A covering her discovery of the Finnish repertory, her risky programming choices, and her decision to become a singer.
How did Megan Moore discover the Sibelius pieces in the first place – and how was she able to sing them packed with such emotion?
”I made a Spotify playlist of famous Finnish composers and did some research. I had of course always known Sibelius, and I knew the song Flickan [kom ifrån sin älsklings möte], but I had never heard Var det en dröm or Den första kyssen before. Gosh, they are famous for a reason! I felt that I just have to sing them, I absolutely have to!” the American singer says.
