Judge has been living in Munich, Germany since the beginning of 2016, and has been auditioning for agents, opera houses, and young artist programs around Europe. She has had auditions in Germany in Berlin, Mainz, and Munich, and in Austria, Belgium, England, and Finland.
“It has been a big learning experience moving to a foreign country on my own to pursue a career in classical singing,” said Judge when asked about moving to another country. “I have been working on my German, and it is coming slowly but surely. I have made new friends in Munich of all different backgrounds. It’s incredible how many nice and caring people there are in the world. Languages and cultures may make us feel different, but we are all just people deep down. It’s a small and large world out there!”
Now based in Munich, Germany, Judge has sung opera, musical theater and performed in recitals in the United States and Europe.
