Pinchgut Opera Giving Circles

If you would like your gift to apply to a specific area, we invite you to consider one of our tailored giving programs, details below.

Taryn Fiebig Scholar

The Taryn Fiebig Scholar program was founded in honour of Taryn’s extraordinary abilities, her legacy, and the significant effect that she had on Pinchgut Opera. The scholarship will encourage development opportunities for emerging Australian opera singers of special potential so that they may develop the kind of dramatic, expressive, and musical qualities that made Taryn a leading exponent of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century opera.

If you would like to donate toward the program, please click the button below, or contact Ilona Brooks on (02) 9318 8344, or email
