I have been accepted to the Opera Performance Studio at the Trentino Music Festival per Mezzano Romantica in northern Italy during the month of July.  I will be participating in Janáček's Cunning Little Vixen, singing Grasshopper and Chocholka (and being frightened to death onstage!). 

This is a program with tuition (popularly known as a "pay to sing").  It is a fantastic deal for similar opera festivals, especially ones abroad, but still a hefty chunk of change for a working girl such as myself, and of course international airfare is never quite the bargain, and I will have living expenses to consider over the course of the month.  The goal I have set would cover tuition (and housing), travel expenses, and a little of living expenses.

This is a wonderful opportunity which will provide me with performance experience, input from talented and experienced teachers, coaches, managers, and conductors, and exposure that I haven't had in my budding opera career.  The festival's partnership with Piper Anselmi Artists Managment will also be invaluable to the business side of the career and give me outstanding tools to advance my career.  It is more than worth the investment, and I need all the help from my loved ones I can get.

I know how easy it is to look at fundraising projects and quickly decide that you can't afford to give anything meaningful.  I can't stress enough that absolutely any amount is valuable, even if it's just a few dollars.  I will also be presenting recitals in May and June during which I will happily accept donations.  I would be so grateful if you would be a part of this once in a lifetime opportunity.
