Hi my name is Amelia Farrugia, I’m an International Opera singer who has enjoyed a wonderful and varied career in Opera, Music Theatre, Concert, Television and Large-scale Events.

In 2015, I established a singing school in Mosman: Sydney Sings Pty Ltd. My mission is to educate, mentor and inspire the next generation of Australian star singers, helping open the door to the International world of Opera.

I’m extremely proud of my students; stunning Soprano Juliette di Bello came to me as a Pop singer in 2015 at the tender age of 14 and she is now singing fully fledged Operatic repertoire. She has recently been offered a place in the Juilliard School in New York. It is now my hope to help raise funds for her education in New York.

PLEASE GIVE YOUNG AUSTRALIAN SINGERS A VOICE ON THE WORLD STAGE!

Your tax-deductible donation will enable me to grow Sydney Sings Pty Ltd in the following ways:

*Creation of Sydney Sings Scholarships for Star achievers to assist them in their International studies

*Employment and Training/Development of Staff

As an Australian singer myself, I would never have been able to achieve my level of training, education and International success without the generous assistance of Patrons, Donors, Supporters and Scholarships. I’d like to express here my deepest gratitude to those very special people who have helped me on my path.

It’s now my mission to help young singers to achieve their dream of International success.

If you believe in Cultural Development, in supporting the Arts and in the value of Musical Education for young Australians, please give generously to Sydney Sings Pty Ltd. Your donation will enable young singers to find their voice on the world stage!
