Dear friends,

My name is Hieu Nguyen, a classical singer from Viet Nam. I was fortunate enough to find out about my singing voice as well as my passion for music during my second year at Bates College. With determination and a burning desire to move forward within the field, I have worked relentlessly to improve my craft. I participated actively in all classical voice activities that I can find either at Bates College or back home in Viet Nam. Many performances and concerts turned out to be both successful and memorable.

Within two and a half years since I discovered music, my voice and musicianship have improved greatly, thanks to the generosity and strong support from Bates College. The next step for me is to get into a good conservatory so that I can hone my skills and get ready for bigger stages. Through careful research and consultation with professionals, professors and friends alike, I realized that the best destination is Germany, the homeland of classical music, where I can find good teachers, abundant of opportunities, schools with free tuition and also affordable living cost. I have learned German for two years, and prepared my repertories for audition.

However, once again, finance becomes a burden and an obstacle to my plan. With all expenses included, I would need around $2,000 for air tickets, voice lessons in Germany, and food. However, my family cannot handle the costs. Therefore, I humbly ask for your support to bring my hopes and dreams into reality. Any amount would help.

Here is a recording of my singing “O del mio dolce ardor” by Christoph Willibald von Gluck. https://soundcloud.com/hieu-nguyen-212/o-del-mio-dolce-ardor-gluck
