Send Natalie to SMIBC Music Program

Hello, my name is Natalie Felix. I am a graduate of DePaul University where I studied classical vocal performance. I was recently accepted into a prestigious and wonderful music program called San Miguel de Allende Institute of Bel Canto (SMIBC) that will take place in Mexico this summer from June 11th to July 8th. This 4-week program would be an amazing opportunity to not only expand my knowledge and vocal technique, but also to travel and explore the culture of my heritage. I'm a dog walker, a retail associate at a small, family owned boutique,  I work as a soprano section leader at a church, and on top of that, I am a freelance musician. Sadly, with how much I work I barely get by after all bills and day to day expenses. If you can find it in your hearts to help me raise funds so I can take this wonderful opportunity to study abroad, I would greatly appreciate it. The program's  tuition with room and board is $3,350. Airfare is not included and that can cost an additional $400. My goal is to try and raise $3,600 to cover both tuition and airfare.  Please help by contributing what you can. Even the smallest donation will be greatly appreciated. If you are unable to donate, please help by sharing this in hopes that others  will be able to lend a hand. First payment for this program is due April 1st so it would be most helpful for me to receive your help by then. I will be sure to inform you if the deadline changes. Thank you very much.

If you would like to hear more about my story please feel free to send an email and I will be happy to share.
