Help Michaela Sing in Italy!


I have been incredibly lucky, for the last two years I've had the opportunity to study voice at Interlochen Arts Academy. This was only made possible for me because of an enormous fundraising effort, and the generosity of so many. I am humbled and grateful to be the recipient of so much good will.

Now I have been offered another opportunity to continue pursuing my dream of one day becoming an opera singer, this time, at a renowned summer voice program in Italy! This program will afford me the opportunity to study Italian intensively, and be completely immersed in the culture! (This training also counts towards college credits) I will, in addition to my studying Italian language and diction, have weekly voice lessons, coachings, and masterclasses with world renowned faculty, and will perform at venues around Italy. (It's all so exciting!!)

I so hope to be able to continue my training and learning, and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
Thank you so much to has helped me fund my dream in the past, and to anyone who chooses to do so in the future. It truly means so much.
