Sarah Wolfson, 28, has performed in opera companies around the U.S. She makes her Lincoln Center debut this fall.

I was 12 when I made my entree into opera. I auditioned for -- and sang in -- the children's chorus of the Washington National Opera in Puccini's La Bohème. I loved being part of the music, the singing, the performance and the costumes. That's when I realized it was possible to make a career of music.
