More Information

Limited need-based scholarships

Lyric Opera provides a limited amount of need-based scholarships for camps as funding allows. Funding for scholarships is not guaranteed.

Interested in a scholarship?  Great letters from kids and their teachers help us recruit generous donors. Please send a letter from your student telling us about what they love about music, singing, acting, design, painting, construction – everything that goes into an opera. Then they should talk about why they’d like to come to camp. This should be paired with a letter from a school music or theater teacher or private music or theater teacher, telling about why this particular student would benefit from such an experience. The sooner we get letters, the sooner we can match them up with potential donors.

Please send your letter to:  Lyric Opera of Kansas City, Attn: Linda Ade Brand, 1725 Holmes St., Kansas City, MO 64108. Scholarship request deadline is Friday, June 21, 2019.

Interesting in funding scholarships?  Your donation of any amount will be put to great use. $495 funds a full scholarship including EarlyBird through Advanced Class sessions. $395 funds a full scholarship for a camper to attend Summer Opera Camp. $200 funds a half-scholarship, and donations of any amount are truly appreciated.

Donate online today and indicate that your donation is in support of Education Scholarships, or contact our Development Department at (816) 471-4933 if you have any questions. Your generous support can help children attend camp and receive professional training.
