Melinda's Performing in Italy!

The Assisi Performing Arts Festival is an annual music festival that takes place in Assisi, Italy. This year, I have been offered the amazing opportunity to perform in this festival, which would help me to grow as a musician. I would have the chance to perform with highly experienced musicians, play solo repertoire, and I would also perform in their orchestra. Following the festival, I would travel to Rome for a two-day break before returning home. The only thing that stands in the way of me going is the cost, but that's where YOU come in.
With your help, I could have the chance to explore Italy, perform with musicians of all levels, and fulfill my dream of travelling to play music.

The Costs:
-Tuition, Room, and Board: $2,750
-Flight: $1,550
-Sightseeing Package: $350
-Food: $350
-Passport: $135

Important Dates:
-April 1: Registration Deadline
-June 1: Flight Payment Due
-July 1: Departure
-July 19: Return

This is my senior year at Sam Houston State University, and I would greatly appreciate any donations that you are willing to offer to help me have the experience of a lifetime!
