Hello friends and family! This summer I have been given the exciting opportunity to participate in a 4-week long training program in Northridge, CA called OperaWorks. (To learn more about the program:)
As many of you know, over the past 6 years I have developed a passion for reaching people through music. I truly believe that God has given me this gift to use for His purposes. Over the years, I have come to know a number of incredible people whom He has used to shape me as a musician and as a person. In order to really hone my craft, it is necessary that I participate in a number of opera training programs. These opportunities take place all over the world and through them, professional contacts are made.
In this specific program, I will learn the business side of opera (marketing, audition skills, financial advice, etc.).

The cost of the program, including room and board is $5,000. Obviously, this is not a small amount of cash, which is why I am asking for help! For your generosity, I would like to offer number of rewards!
$15: a postcard from California
$50: a recording of me singing your favorite hymn (will take songs by request!)
$100: a CD of me singing
$150: I will come clean your house and cook you dinner!
