Help an Opera Singer Live His Dream

Hello I am Andrew Kelly and I am an opera singer. I am currently in my second year about to go into my third in August at the University of Texas at Austin. I am currently on the track to receive a degree in Vocal Performance. I am asking for help because I have been offered an amazing opprutunity. I applied for a summer program with Utah Lyric Opera and they are doing a production of "Carmen" by Bizet. I have been in opera's since I joined an opera chorus my second year of High School. The second chorus I was in was for Carmen. This show was the one that made me want to be an opera singer. I saw the tenor on the stage and saw how he owned the stage and he had the light on him and I said that I wanted to be in his spot one day and now I have the opprutunity to be that tenor in the exact same show. The program is about a month long from July 1-26. I am asking for help because even though the program cost isn't too high for what it offers it is still sadly out of my budget. The main cost is the tuition and that is $2150. Then housing costs are $400 for the time. Then i have to figure the travel and expenses while there and the cost just adds up. Sadly my family makes such a low income that they cant afford to help too much with this so this is why I am asking for help. I also plan on doing some benefit recitals so if you are available I will post the times and locations as soon as I get some planned. Please I know times are hard but anything helps and it all adds up. I really do appreciate your help and your support for making my dream come true.
