OSA PATRON PROGRAM 2017
We invite you to become a supporter of Opera Scholars Australia. Our program relies entirely on personal and philanthropic donations that help us maintain and expand our program. The more we can develop our program, the more we can provide these promising young singers with training and performance opportunities.
TIER 1) OSA GUEST CONDUCTOR PATRON
DONATION OF $20,000
OSA Guest Conductor Patron is an exciting opportunity to make a significant impact on the overall program. This support enables OSA to engage high level music directors and conductors and helps shape the future, ensuring longevity of the program. Scholars will be guided by musicians of the highest calibre in the opera world.
TIER 2) OSA OPERA AMPLIFIED PATRON
DONATION OF $10,000
OSA Opera Amplified Patron supports a range of opera projects, concerts, masterclasses, vocal coaching and workshops. Stronger ties will be built with professional opera singers and industry specialists who will assist to develop the tools needed to be a successful performer. These initiatives allow the Program to also provide for young people in regional areas.
TIER 3) OSA FULL SCHOLARSHIP PATRON
DONATION OF $6,000
OSA Full Scholarship Patron funds the participation of one singer in the program for a full season. This includes weekly rehearsals and performance preparation sessions, development of professional media resources, participation in an extensive range of performance experiences and the highlight of the year – attendance at the weeklong residential OSA Summer School in Beechworth.
TIER 4) OSA REGIONAL SUMMER SCHOLAR PATRON

Summer Scholars receive all masterclasses and workshops throughout the week and participate in all performances. All travel, food and accommodation costs are covered.
Individual donation of amounts up to $1,999 ensure the OSA program continues to strive from strength to strength.
All donors and patrons will be invited to our VIP pre-concert event at the OSA Aria on 24 September 2017.
