I just wanted to give one last "danke!" to everyone who donated and offered up prayers for my travels. As I get ready to leave for Munich this weekend, I can't help but be filled with such gratitude for all those who helped make my dream come true. I wouldn't be going if it wasn't for all of you! My heart goes out to each of you, so thank you.
Oh my goodness, I am $190 from my goal! Over $8,300 raised! I am so, so blessed. Something tells me going to Austria is something I was meant to do... :) God didn't just open this door for me...he pushed me right through it! Thank you everyone! I can't wait to share my experience with you all!
A million thanks to the 100+ people who have donated almost $7,900 for my summer program! As I sit and listen to Wolf and Berg, trying to chose what I want to learn this summer, I can't help but feel so grateful for everyone's love and support--without which I wouldn't have been able to accept the invitation to go to Austria at all. Thank you, friends and family!
I'm getting closer everyday! Thanks for all of the love, everyone! I will have new videos up soon. In the meantime, donate what you can, as well as pray for my safety this summer. As graduation rolls around this coming weekend, Austria is starting become more and more of a reality!

Please donate to help me study opera in Austria this summer! Thank you so much to all those who have already donated..you're making my dream a reality!
I had the opportunity to perform solo work with the Symphonic Chorale of Southwest Florida, alongside four professional singers who also showcased their talents. What an adventure! I sang some Barber, and the soprano soloist same some Verdi right after me. It was such a rewarding experience, and hopefully one of many performance opportunities to come!

My name is Ariel, and I am one of 40 singers selected to travel to Salzburg this summer to study opera at Salzburg College with the Frost School of Music. However, I cannot afford to pay for my tuition. Please consider helping me get to Austria! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I don't want to miss out on it because I can't afford it. It is my dream to sing opera professionally one day, and this could be that first step towards reaching my goal. Thank you!!! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Please feel free to share my page with friends and family.
