Opera stars-in-the-making get study help

2015-05-12 06:00

Budding opera singers have until Friday 29 May to be recommended for the Africa ­Voices Trust’s free development programme in opera.

The trust aims to identify and educate ­future stars across all musical genres, providing them with the skills they need in order to create financially sustainable and meaningful careers.

Selected musicians are guided through a ten-month educational journey in mastering their chosen fields both as performers and industry professionals.

This year’s programme is dedicated to opera due to the demand identified in this genre, and is aimed at building on the knowledge and experience already gained by dedicated up-and-coming artists in the field.

The programme is looking for recommendations of participants by individuals and entities within the creative industry.

There is no academic requirement to gain entry to the programme but successful vocalists must display remarkable musical talent, execution, charisma and ambition.
