Opera Queensland’s award-winning education and community programs transform young lives.
With your help, we can continue to leave a lasting legacy across Queensland – one which inspires, nurtures and empowers young people to find their voice.
This year, renowned philanthropist Philip Bacon AM has generously pledged to match any donation up to $25,000 to help us inspire the next generation of opera lovers.
The ultimate example of a life transformed by Opera Queensland’s education and community programs is Sam Piper. In 2010, a then 16-year-old Sam joined one of our popular school workshops, an experience which would change his life journey.
“I turned from computer nerd into opera lover overnight. I later went on to work in Opera Queensland’s education program as a tutor, and saw this profound impact happen with other students. It is extraordinary to be a part of.”
Fast forward to June 2018 and you’ll find Sam preparing for his principal debut as Masetto in Opera Queensland’s new production of Don Giovanni.
Your support will help Opera Queensland reach children across Queensland. Not all will go on to be singers like Sam…some will become teachers, lawyers and engineers but all will share a passion for opera.
Help us inspire the next generation of opera lovers. Donate by 30 June and your donation will be doubled.
