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.

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.

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.
