As part of its commitment to providing career pathways for Australian operatic talent, State Opera has established an annual Summer Opera Academy. Running full time over two weeks in February 2021, the Academy provides a dedicated opportunity for high-level emerging artists from across the country to experience intensive professional development with some of Australia’s finest coaches and music educators. The highly selective Summer Opera Academy is an opera development program providing practical professional instruction to emerging artists with a view to creating sustainable, extraordinary operatic careers.
We would be honoured if you would consider supporting the place of a participant at the Summer Opera Academy through the donation of a scholarship. With your tax-deductible gift of $1,500 you can elect to fund and name a scholarship that will be allocated to an aspiring talented singer to support their attendance. With your help, we can remove the barriers to participation and therefore ensure that this much-needed opportunity is available to all successful auditionees.
Each scholarship is instrumental in building the confidence, experience and capability within our next generation of opera singers, progressing each young person’s career and the future of excellence in opera in Australia.
Your gift of a scholarship can be made online by selecting the Summer Opera Academy drop down option or by calling (08) 8226 4790 to make your gift or for further information.
