The first, is so that I can participate in a wonderful masterclass in France this summer at end of July to which I have been invited, the 25th Musicalta Academy. There will be lessons with a fantastic teacher and a concert at the end of the week. (Finally, onstage for even a small audience makes me breathe a sigh of relief). You can see all the info here:
The second objective is for a longer use. All the opera houses and concert institutions prefer to see you even before they invite you to audition or perform. The preselection process is brutal and even though they all say "you don't HAVE to have professional recordings", if you don't - you're at a disadvantage. Almost three years ago I got into the studio and made audio recordings of my audition arias, which you can hear here:

For 2021 and beyond, however, audio is no longer enough. The rest of the funds from this campaign will go toward hiring a professional sound engineer and videographer to produce these short video clips of me singing. These videos are compulsory along with a cv when you apply for ANYTHING in my field these days.
Normally, I can cover the expenses for these types of projects - but normally I'm not forbidden to do my job. Your support will make it possible for me to brush up on my skills with a reknowned vocal pedagogue and create the application materials necessary for me to do my job, to move further toward fulfilling my career purpose, the only thing I've wanted to do since I was four years old. I cannot begin to really describe how it feels during this time that there is no cultural life to be had. I can only hold on to the belief that we can see the light at the end of the dark tunnel and keep walking toward it - to do something every day that places one foot in front of the other. Your contribution toward my campaign will put the figurative shoes on my feet, so that I can keep walking. I am forever grateful!
