Help Sheridan to Perform in Italy

World renowned conductor Stefano Vignati with Sheridan after a successful audition

Sheridan Archbold is a 13 year old boy Soprano who has gained much respect in the music industry as a gifted child prodigy.  Few boys of Sheridan’s age can claim to have won multiple singing awards or received a standing ovation on ‘America’s Got Talent’, but then very few boys have Sheridan’s classical soprano voice and a work ethic to match!  

It’s also safe to say that no 13 year old boys have been awarded an opportunity to perform Cherubino in opera "Le Nozze di Figaro" and be a part of the International Lyric Academy in Rome & Viterbo.

Recently Sheridan was invited to take part in their program which involves special classes, advanced vocal training, and a performing Cherubino in opera Le Nozze di Figaro Opera, which is to be accompanied by a full orchestra led by a world famous conductor Stefano Vignati.

This is a dream come true for Sheridan.  Of course that is why we are coming to you.

It is a false conception that every child prodigy you see on YouTube or the Web comes from an extremely wealthy family.  The fact is, most do not. Many a young artists families struggle with the expense of traveling to and from auditions, charity events, and free performances. Add to this lodging, special clothing, and food expenses and it’s easy to see how this can add up fast.

In a nutshell these young struggling musicians, actors, dancers and vocal artists all have expenses way beyond anything that is returned to them. So you see, the bigger the opportunity the greater the expense. 

This is where you come in.  A venture like this will cost upward to $10,000 dollars for flight costs, lodging, transportation for Sheridan and his chaperone. Yes because these youngsters are minors they require a chaperone. 

Sheridan’s family extends far beyond his blood relatives or immediate support team.  It extends to you! Sheridan would not be where he was if it were not for all of you who have been so encouraging and supportive with your comments and praise!

But now he needs you in an even more personal and involved way.

Would you please be generous with a nice donation to help send Sheridan to Rome for this life changing experience?  When you do, you will share in the excitement of his journey. The joy you will feel when he sings and performs will be even greater knowing you played a special part in his success.

Please give what you can.  We know not everyone will be able to give a large donations but think about it…  Sheridan currently has 352 subscribers on YouTube with over 68,000 views. If each subscriber gave just $25.00 he would nearly reach his goal.  If every view received just $1 dollar he would reach his goal 6 times over.  Of course if you can afford $100.00 or more it would help immensely.

Will you please consider giving today and help make Sheridan’s dream a reality.
