I have had an astonishing and very unexpected turn of events. Just as I was about to send my offical acceptance letter and initial payment to the Music Academy International, I recieved an acceptance letter and was offered a role at the Berlin Opera Academy in Berlin, Germany. The acceptance letter also informed me that I had been awarded the "Elizabeth Luxtuon Scholarship" totaling 2000€ towards my tuition fee. I am very excited to announce that I will be attending the Berlin Opera Academy 2018. I will be performing in Engelbert Humperdinck's Hänsel und Gretel in the role of the Echo Chorus. This is a program that hundreds of musicians apply for every year, and it is a privilege and honor to be accepted into this phenomenal program. Not only will the Berlin Opera Academy stretch me academically, it will also provide me with opportunities that will shape my future opera career. Please consider supporting me in meeting the remaining tuition cost. Thank you for your prayers and support!
