We are delighted to offer alumni the opportunity to invest in the future of UCT’s Opera School, which for nearly ninety years has been creating opera stars for the world’s stages.

The School prides itself on discovering vocal talent amidst impoverished communities that are rich in musical culture, and takes great pleasure in transforming the lives of singers and the audiences who are thrilled by them.

The Opera School, as a major opera training institution in South Africa, is a cradle for talent and needs your support to continue turning fragile dreams into imaginative opportunities. Donations of any size to the Opera School Endowment Fund are very welcome.

News Flash! The Andrew Mellon Foundation has kindly awarded a Challenge Grant: they will match all donations made to the Opera School Endowment Fund from now until December 2017 (up to a maximum of US$500,000) – thus every pound donated by UK opera lovers will be doubled!

Interested alumni may wish to make monthly/quarterly/annual pledges over 5 years towards this project. To download a pledge form please click here.
