Opera Viva! in Verona Italy

This is an exciting opportunity to study under Robert C. White, Jr, Professor of Music at Julliard and vocal coach of the Lindemann Young Artists Program at the Metropolitan Opera. I have been selected to participate in an intense curriculum of language study, stage movement, interpretation, and cultural exposure in the timeless Verona, Italy. Establishing a strong reputation with faculty from the east coast is a much needed edge in my pursuit of mastery in operatic singing.

My only obstacle is the financial cost for attendance.

Airplane tickets: $2923.80 - Paid
Down Payment: $1,000 - Paid
Remaining Tuition and Board: $3800
Food and Expenses: 1,000

I am determined to raise the funds necessary and make this a reality. Any support, even a couple dollars, can make a difference. If you are unable to lend financial aid, your prayers are equally valued. Thank you for your constant love and encouragement!

Here is a video of my progress. Enjoy!
