Panizza bursary

Panizza bursary

What is it?

OperaCoast is keen to support not only singers but upcoming instrumentalists as well. Funded by our trustee, a pianist and an academic Dr Nicole Panizza, this bursary offers an opportunity to an apprentice repetiteur to participate in our summer opera course.

Working alongside our professional accompanist and under their mentoring, an apprentice is a vital part of our course, helping singers to prepare for the performance at the end of the course and learning to work specifically on opera accompaniment. The bursary covers participation in the course and accommodation in Eastbourne for the duration of the course and is granted by the results of the open auditions.

Who is it for?

  • Undergraduate or postgraduate student pianist willing to learn more about opera accompaniment.
