Financial support for The Programme imperative for ongoing success
Posted on 3 November 2017
The Kiri Programme is a major commitment for the Kiri Te Kanawa Foundation, both in terms of organisation and financially. Total costs for the first year were significant and it is unsustainable for the Foundation to continue to invest this level of financing year after year. While the Foundation is still by far the biggest funder, the contributions received from others have been extremely helpful. As we continue the 2017-18 modules further financial help is required to ensure the long-term viability of The Kiri Programme. Donations of any size are welcome.
"The sharpened career trajectories of all six singers are testament to the talent of New Zealand’s best young singers and early evidence that the Programme is focussing effectively on the skills required to speed them on their musical journey."
