RECIPIENT OF THE WHITE FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP
Lisette Bolton is a young soprano from Wagga Wagga, NSW, currently undertaking a Bachelor of Music at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music. Her initial interest in classical singing began following a series of workshops run by Richard Gill and the Victorian Opera in the small country town of Morundah, NSW, in 2011.
Lisette was the recipient of the 2016 Hume Bank Scholarship at the Murray Conservatorium of Music, Albury. That same year she was awarded the Margaret Kennedy Memorial Scholarship by the St Matthew’s Music Association.
Some of Lisette's past performances include singing at the launch of the Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre's 2017 season and at Music in the Gardens in the Albury Botanic Gardens.
In January of 2017, Lisette was one of four senior secondary students to be a part of Opera Australia's Regional Student Scholarship program and spent a week's immersion in the company.
This is Lisette's second year with Opera Scholars Australia and she is very excited to be a part of the 2018 season.
