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.
