Abner's Summer Opera Program

$110 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 2 people in 22 months
Hello! My name is Abner Caraballo.  I am a tenor from Puerto Rico .

I am happy to announce that for 2nd year in March I was selected out of hundreds of candidates to join the Savannah Voice Festival and was offered the role of Basilio in the opera Le Nozze di Figaro.

For the select artists chosen to attend the program, SVF offers one of the highest level of operatic training for young singers in the nation. I will be working with internationally acclaimed directors, conductors, and coaches from The Metropolitan Opera, Washington National Opera, Houston Grand opera, LA Opera and the Vienna State Opera.  In addition to preparing my role I will follow a rigorous training schedule of lessons, classes, and vocal coachings.  

Here is a link with more details on this fantastic program

Savannah Voice Festival 

The challenges, contacts, and intense training SVF provides are crucial to my development as a young opera singer.  In order for me to take advantage of this outstanding opportunity, I need to raise $3,000 for my tuition, housing, meals, scores, and travel expenses.  Here is where you can help! 

Please consider becoming a donor or sponsor of my participation at SVF with any amount you can give--even the smallest donation is gratefully appreciated! Your contribution will not only enable me to attend this program, but also to establish my career as an opera singer and continue to share with you the music I have so enjoyed studying over these past years.

This program, as are most summer festivals, costs well beyond my financial capabilites. An opportunity such as this is much too ideal, important, and life-changing to risk missing; not only would I be performing over full orchestra, but I would also be under the direction of faculty from world-renowned opera companies. Any donation would be much appreciated and cherished. To gain more insight into the financial requirements to participate, here is a timeline for and list of expenses:

Deposit and Registration: $750

Payment  (June 1, 2017): $1500 (with discount)

Housing : $890 with taxes-  rate of $102/night 

Airfare: apprx. $450

Food (not included in program cost): approximately $600

Thank you so much for your love and support!
