When you think "opera singer," you probably don't think "biker chick" and "aerialist." But that's what makes Memphis so great. The arts are interwoven with every area of life in our city. That's why Nikola Printz is the perfect subject to kick off our brand new Authentic Stories Campaign. With this series, we'll be featuring local artists and art patrons who have a unique personal story -- with a focus on stories found only in Memphis. In Nikola's case, she's not only a dynamite Mezzo Soprano who perfroms major roles with Opera Memphis. She's also a motorcycle afficionado and an accomplished aerialist, to boot.
Take it from Nikola:
"Support from ArtsMemphis makes it possible for young people like me to start a life of art in a cool town like Memphis."
We couldn't have said it any better, Nika!
