The support we have received from our community of donors for the program has been inspiring, not only for the artists who benefit from your generosity, but the entire team at Opera Queensland who share in the joy of watching the young artists grow through their involvement in the program.
Our recent alumni Rebecca Cassidy, Xenia Puskarz Thomas, Sofia Troncoso and Timothy Newton are now enjoying wonderful opportunities with companies around Australia and internationally.
We asked Sofia to share with us her reflections on being part of the program –
“Being a young artist is like having an inhouse support system…, there is no other situation in which I experience so much generosity but also get so much out of it.” Sofia Troncoso
The Mather Foundation again join our Appeal to provide matched funding. This means your donation is doubled and your $100 becomes $200 or $500 becomes $1000. A genuinely powerful way to increase the impact of your gift.
On behalf of us all, thank you for your ongoing support. The difference your donation makes to the careers of these young artists is genuinely life changing.
