Help Anna ful­fil her opera dream

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A tal­ented Cam­bus­lang teenager is hop­ing lo­cal busi­nesses or groups can help her ful­fil her dream of at­tend­ing a pres­ti­gious Ital­ian opera school this sum­mer.

Anna Hey­wood, of Kirk­burn Av­enue, has been in­vited to show­case her in­cred­i­ble tal­ent at the Ital­ian Opera School in Bari this sum­mer.

We re­ported in the Re­former two weeks ago that Cam­bus­lang Ro­tary Club had helped fund £250 of the £800 Anna needs to com­plete the trip.

The 18-year-old Glas­gow Univer­sity stu­dent said:“It’s a re­ally amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity. I’ve been to Italy with my fam­ily on hol­i­day, but I’ve never done any­thing like this.

“I’m study­ing his­tory and Ital­ian at univer­sity so it will be a chance to work on my stud­ies as well. I’m so ex­cited, I can’t wait.

“The course is nor­mally some­thing that bridges the gap be­tween a post grad­u­ate de­gree and be­com­ing an opera singer. It’s such a tremen­dous hon­our.”

Any­one who thinks they can help her out can get in touch with Anna via email at anna.hey­wood@hot­mail. com or give the Re­former a call .
