Hello my friends,
I have been given a wonderful chance that will massively improve my skills and future career opportunities...
A little while ago I went to visit the Wales International Academy of Voice to sing to its Director, world famous Tenor Dennis O'Neill. I was astounded when he offered me a place on the spot!
In September this year I would be joining a tiny selection of handpicked singers from around the world on a one year course designed to hone our skills to the highest possible level in preparation for the competitive world of opera.
The course includes vital lessons in technique and style, language coaching, gala showcases, professional placements and career advice as well as resulting in an MA being awarded at its conclusion.
Masterclasses are held with some of the great singers and musicians of our time including its honorary president Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Ryland Davies, Ann Murray, Richard Bonynge, Joseph Rouleau and Dennis O'Neill.
As you can imagine, this is an incredible opportunity and one I want to make the most of if I can raise the funds to get there. I am looking for financial support to cover the costs of the course, which at present are beyond my reach at £9750 for tuition fees plus living expenses of just over £6000.
If you feel that you can help in any way, great or small, I will be eternally grateful! Information can be found here.
With my warmest wishes and thanks,
P.S. I also have a CD available to purchase here.
