Opera Scholars Australia

Founded in 1998, Opera Scholars Australia is a leading professional development program for young classical singers, providing unparalleled performance opportunities for talented young artists. Based in Melbourne, OSA offers up to 25 scholarships each year to classical singers between 18 and 24 years of age, providing extensive training and performance experience throughout Victoria and interstate. This bridges the 'gap' left by other development programs, which typically engage singers on the verge of their professional careers in the 25 to 35 age bracket.
