Becoming an accomplished singer is a long haul. Even after post-graduate study certain voice types (and most men) require further years of lessons to reach anything approaching full potential.
Alwyn Mellor (Isolde at Grange Park 2011) is a case in point. It was only in her mid 30s that the voice came into its own and she is now booked for Brunnhilde at Bastille in Paris.
During this post-post-graduate period, singers find some chorus work but lessons are expensive and don't lie within living budgets.
The Scholarship Fund is used to help these singers pay for lessons and coachings in the preparation of particular roles, or to work on a particular aspect of the voice. We often pay the teacher/coach directly and keep a watchful eye on progress.
Seven singers this year have benefitted from this pot of money. Click here to read how the fund has helped them.
