WINTER SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS

Each winter State Opera South Australia takes great pride in hosting a two-week performing arts education experience for Australia’s most talented secondary and tertiary opera students. State Opera South Australia takes its responsibility very seriously to provide education, opportunities, and access for young people to establish themselves in this artform we all hold so dear.

State Opera South Australia invites you to support the place of an individual young person at the State Opera South Australia Opera Winter School through the donation of a scholarship. With your tax-deductible gift of $1,200 you can elect to fund and name a scholarship that will be allocated to a student who achieves a high ranking in the audition results or facilitate the attendance of a talented student with limited financial means.

Students will be required to apply and audition for the Winter School which includes an intense fortnight of vocal and music study, dramaturgy training, hair and make-up classes, movement lessons, as well as working alongside professional opera singers, creatives and staff.

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 South Australia.

Your gift of a scholarship can be made online by selecting the Winter School drop down option or contact Ms Sylvie Huigen, Development Executive on (08) 7077 2816 or [email protected] to make your gift or for further information.
