Gráinne Gillis has a rare voice type and she is looking for sponsorship to further her career through a German audition tour. "I have a rare voice type, that of the dramatic mezzo-soprano with a sizeable extension into my chest voice (comfortably to a C below middle C), and my repertoire is comfortably that of the bigger operatic roles. I have been training with Neil Baker (Trinity College of Music, and teacher to artists like Amanda Echalaz, Miriam Murphy, Wendy Dawn Thompson) and Andrew Griffiths (National Opera Studio, Royal Opera House Covent Garden). Working solely with people outside the conservatoire system, I have pursued my operatic career with dedication, passion and single-minded determination, because I believe that opera, above all art forms, is the greatest and most potent expression artistically that one can experience, both as performer and audience. Simply put – opera is my life and my great love. I am at a juncture where I'm ready to take the next step in my career - auditioning and working in Germany. To do so, I need funds. As any opera lover knows, Germany is the centre of opera globally, and a natural location for a dramatic voice like mine, which is most at home in the works of Verdi, Wagner, Strauss and the bigger twentieth century repertoire. Whether you are an individual or organization passionate about the arts and investing in stars of the future, you will be keen to join other opera lovers willing to support what the The Observer called a voice with 'rich, dramatic potential'. If you choose to invest in my talent, I’ll be honoured to include your name on my biography, website and competition and performance programmes. Also, it will be a pleasure to meet with you personally to apprise you of my developments and, if agreed by both parties, to perform at personal and corporate events. Overall, I have estimated I need an investment of £5,600.00, which would cover living expenses, lessons, coaching and a trip to Germany over the all-important audition season from October-December. Here are individually some of the expenses you could sponsor ...     accommodation and living expenses in Germany and flights: £3,000.00    professional quality DVD recordings for competitions, job applications, etc. - £1,100.00 to cover studio rental, sound engineer's fee, pianist    professional quality opera headshots: £300.00    £600.00 for singing lessons for the six weeks    £600.00 for coaching sessions twice a month"."Opera is complex for those who perform it, but also for those who listen to it. It takes more time, more patience and more spirit of sacrifice. All this is well worth it because opera offers such deep sensations that they will remain in a heart for a lifetime" - Andrea Bocelli.

Examples of Gráinne's work  




Opera Seria is a new opera company established in Manchester to bring emerging operatic professionals together with local people to enhance Manchester's cultural community. "We are dedicated to giving our soloists the ability to sing roles they might otherwise not sing early in their careers, enabling them to strengthen their experience and their CVs as they emerge into the larger professional world. We also want people from all walks of life to participate in the art form that is opera, by giving them opportunities to get involved in the company through our Community Chorus and our Acting Opera programme. We want to reach out to the disenfranchised community members, as we believe music is a great way to empower disadvantaged and socially isolated people, giving them something to tap their creative energies and feel proud about. We are seeking financial support to fund our outreach programmes as well as our main productions. Upcoming productions include a Gala Concert, Anna Bolena, Don Giovanni and I Capuleti e i Montecchi. We have a range of sponsorship packages that includes brand and logo identity on marketing and promotional materials, tickets, corporate hospitality, advertising in programmes, etc. Please get in touch to discuss how we can work together to bring opera to the wider Manchester community".

"I am a young, dramatic soprano at the exciting yet challenging juncture between the end of my studies and the beginning of my career. In order to get work I must go and audition in Europe this coming autumn, but the cost of travelling to other countries is currently well beyond my means. I am therefore seeking sponsorship. If you choose to trust and invest in my talent, I will systematically include your personal or company name on my biography, website, and on all the performance and competition programmes for the coming years. I will also happily perform at your personal or corporate events. Support a rising opera talent!" Contact: Marie Degodet. Address: 10 Knapmill Road, London SE6 3SZ. Tel.: 07986825797. E-mail:
