“I was most fortunate to have studied at the RIAM.  This vibrant Academy is vital to the
music education of today’s singers and instrumentalists.  Some forty years on, I have the pleasure of working regularly with the RIAM’s young singers, helping them to prepare for their professional careers.

Music making and performing are part of our national culture.  We, in Ireland, receive performing opportunities from an early age through music graded examinations and competitions.  These in turn have provided us with a wealth of talented, eager and hard-working young singers.  They are on their way to challenging and exciting lives in opera.

With the support of this new initiative called Opera Angels, these young artists will benefit greatly.  In return for your involvement, you will have the great pleasure of watching a career take flight.

Thank you for your support.”

Sincerely,

Ann Murray DBE
