"A voice of unique colour and beautiful facility. Combined with her impeccable timing on stage, Ariel is an up-and-coming talent to watch."

Ariel has a strong background in choral music, having sung with the Cawthra Park Chamber Choir, Les Belles Classiques, Ritz Ensemble, Queen’s Choral Ensemble, Polyhymnia, She Sings! and the Kingston Chamber Choir over the last few years.
