Send Kathleen to Austria!

Hello Friends!

I have been accepted into the prestigious American Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria! I'm so excited for this opportunity to work with international teachers, coaches, and professionals in the business. I have graciously been award a scholarship to attend, but unfortunately, even with the financial assistance the cost is too high for me to cover out of pocket. Please consider sponsoring me, and donate to the fund.

BONUS: Donations to my tuition fund can be made directly to AIMS and are TAX DEDUCTIBLE, as they are a non-profit organization!!
To make your donation through AIMS:
· Use this link:
· Select "Make Donation to AIMS"
· In the "Special Instructions" field, enter my name, "Kathleen Payne"

"AIMS, the leading summer vocal program and the most comprehensive course of its kind, brings future opera and concert performers together with an eminent faculty in a one-of-a-kind experience. Dedicated to bridging the gap between musical training and a career in music, AIMS concentrates on individual technical development and a professional approach to a musical career. The focus is on the serious musician aspiring to a career in music. Many young artists who participated in AIMS have become celebrated performers on the world's stages."

And now, a limerick:

An adventure abroad is in sight,
But alas, for money is tight.
Your generous donation
Will cause celebration
Please help end my monetary plight!
