Jasmine is 16 and has a huge passion and talent for Opera Singing. We paid for her to travel to her singing lessons at the Guildhall so that she could continue her career path in Operatics.Earlier this year she received the prestigious Bill Weston Young Singers Award from Glyndebourne for showing exceptional promise and later this year she performed at Glyndebourne in their production of ‘Belongings’.
I am delighted that the Starr Trust is supporting me because the money will help towards the cost of going to Guildhall in London and extra studies that are important to me. The money means that I can go and enjoy the next step in my career and not worry about anything which will make the experience a lot more enjoyable. I will try my best at my studies to make sure that the support you give me doesn’t go to waste.
As a parent I obviously want to support Jasmine in her studies however studying music has a lot of costs and realistically I would not be able to afford it. I am very glad that Jasmine got support from the Starr Trust as this means that I can allow Jasmine to study without the worry and enjoy watching her learn and grow as a performer.
Jasmine performed at Glyndebourne in their production of ‘Belongings’. Our Champions’ Manager Mel Stoner went along with two Champions, sisters Ayala and Sophie, who were kindly given free tickets from Glyndebourne, along with Emma Red – who has offered to donate a piano to Jasmine to help her with her studies. It was a stunning opera, and Jasmine was fantastic. Earlier this year, Jasmine received the prestigious Bill Weston Young Singers Award from Glyndebourne for showing exceptional promise, which resulted in her being granted £1000 to further her studies. Well done Jasmine!
