Unfortunately this project was not successful.

To raise money for Travel and Accommodation for an opera course in Sweden, in which I get to sing at Drottningholm Theatre.

by Laura Hocking in Welbeck, England, United Kingdom


I'm Laura Hocking, and I am pursuing a career in Opera, hoping to sing on stages around the world. I am just about to complete my masters degree at the Royal College of Music, London, having got a first class Bachelor of Music degree from the same place. After I graduate, I hope to start freelancing and preparing to audition for young artist programmes. 

I am thrilled that this summer I have got a place on The Opera Singer at Drottningholm, which is a three week singing course in Sweden. I have been given the opportunity to work with leading professionals in baroque opera and perform Handel Opera Scenes at the Drottningholm Theatre, which is firstly a stunning theatre, but also one of the best acoustics in the world to sing baroque music in. 

The course itself is fully funded, which is fantastic news. However I need to pay for flights and accommodation, which will be to about £600. I am trying to save up as much money as I can, however being a student who is completing a degree in London means that I currently would not be able to afford this. 

This is why I am asking for your help. If you can donate any amount I would be so grateful, as I would be closer to being able to participate in this fantastic course. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this!
