Pegasus Opera launches Opera Mentoring Programme for next generation of opera singers from BAME backgrounds.

Pegasus Opera launches Opera Mentoring Programme for next generation of opera singers from BAME backgrounds.
Despite a degree of progress, BAME classical singers remain under-represented on the opera stage. In response to this Pegasus Opera, a BAME-led organisation, is launching a digital mentoring programme giving 15 aspiring classical singers from BAME backgrounds the opportunity to receive one to one coaching on repertoire, vocal technique and career advice from seasoned professionals and an experienced vocal agent.

The programme will be led by the professionals at the forefront of diversity in opera featuring Sir Willard White, Alison Buchanan, Maureen Brathwaite, Ronald Samm, Keel Watson and opera manager, Sam Krum from Robert Gilder & Co. Pegasus will support artists who have incredible talent but lack opportunity and this programme offers a high quality mentoring experience from the safety, accessibility and convenience of their own home during this difficult period for performers.

The programme will run during September and October 2020, and applications are invited by 3 August 2020.

Full details from the Pegasus Opera website.
