I am thrilled to announce that I have been invited to perform the role of Zerlina in a production of Don Giovanni during La Musica Lirica's 2017 Music Festival!
La Musica Lirica is an intensive five-week operatic training program (June 17th-July 22nd) led by world-class faculty in the beautiful Emiglia Romagna region of Italy. In addition to performing Zerlina in a fully-staged production with a professional orchestra, I will also be taking about 20 hours of Italian per week, two half-hour weekly coachings, and two forty-five minute lessons per week. At the end of the program there will also be Master Classes held with the resident faculty and internationally-renowned Master Teacher Julia Faulkner.
I believe that this program is extremely valuable as I continue my education as an opera singer after graduating with my Masters degree in Vocal Performance this spring. As this is an international program, there are more expenses incurred than many other summer programs which is why I have created this YouCaring page. If you are willing and able, any donation is greatly appreciated to help me pay for the program and my travel and living expences for the duration of my time in Italy.
I also plan to document my trip so that I can share my experience with all of you! If you would like more information about the program, please see the attatched link or feel free to contact me.
