Tracy Dahl

Coloratura soprano


If your house were on fire, heaven forbid, what's the one item contained within that you would try to take with you? (People, pets and computers not included.

I would not be able to choose, so I would not go back. How could I choose? What would I regret losing the most? I would be devastated to lose our photos.

 

What's the one clothing/fashion item you can't live without?

A sweater or shawl.

 

What's your favourite knick-knack and why?

Two swans, made of ceramic with a mother-of-pearl finish. They were given to my parents as a present, made by my eldest sister, who passed away when I was 14 She used to take me to a ceramics store on Osborne Street. I made many knick-knacks there with her teaching me, but these were special. They have long necks and are extremely fragile. I think she must have broken them and started over at least three times.

 

What's the oldest thing you own?

We have some fossils. I have boys and my eldest really loved dinosaurs. We bought them near Drumheller, Alta.

 

Describe your most beloved piece of furniture.

An inherited sewing table. It is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship with carved oak compartments.


Is there an edible item we'll always find in your pantry or fridge?

Fridge: apples. Pantry: Rice Krispies.
