"There are a lot of people coming from my community," Corbisiero confessed in the greenroom of Place des Arts. She was referring to family, friends and possibly some classmates from Our Lady of Pompeii School, where Sister Jocelyne Bouchard insisted that the young soprano pursue voice rather than the language courses that interested her.
