Sponsor a Singer
This is a wonderful opportunity for you to personally support the development and career of young artists and emerging stars as part of the 2022 Festival. Every sponsor will have the opportunity to meet their artist for coffee/lunch in the lead-up to the Festival and will be named in cast lists in both our printed programme and on our website. They will also receive a thank-you note and signed production photograph.
Sponsoring a Principal Artist (£1,000)
All of the principal singers in The Marriage of Figaro and Svadba are available for sponsorship. Find out more here: The Marriage of Figaro, Svadba. Your generosity will help pay for coaching with Head of Music Ashley Beauchamp and Festival Music Director Bertie Baigent, while also contributing to the artist’s performance fee. Our Principal Artists are some of the UK's most exciting emerging singers – with a role at Waterperry a vital step in forging their career. Principal Artist Sponsors will be invited to attend rehearsals in London, as well as dress rehearsals at Waterperry, with an opportunity to meet performers backstage either in the interval or afterwards.
Sponsoring a Young Artist (£500)
All of the singers on our 2022 Young Artist Programme are available for sponsorship. Find out more here: 2022 Young Artists. Your generosity will help fund a wide range of development opportunities in the YA Programme this summer. These include the Young Artist Gala, a masterclass with tenor Nicky Spence, video recording of an aria, singing lessons and coachings, workshops in movement, acting and audition skills, as well as development sessions in CV building, tax advice and self-production. All our Young Artists leave with new professional headshots and production photography to add to their portfolios. Your sponsorship would also help us provide travel, food, accommodation and subsistence to ensure participation in the Programme is open to everyone. Sponsors will be invited to attend Young Artist rehearsals in London and the Nicky Spence Masterclass (22nd July) free of charge.
