Messages from our foundation singers - Oliver Sewell
Posted on 22 December 2016
My time at Manhattan School of Music has come to an end. On reflection of my two years at MSM I am amazed at how incredible the education was. I learnt and grew so much more than I ever thought possible. As I begin the next chapter in my journey I feel truly confident that MSM has given me the tools I need to succeed. It was a great honour and surprise to be endorsed by the school and win the Stan Sesser Career Award at graduation awarded to a “an exceptional graduating student from the Graduate Program who has extraordinary potential for a career in opera”.
My visa extension (which allows me to stay in the USA until July 2017) has been approved and now it is time to focus on the audition season (I have applied to sing for a number of opera houses and young artist programs) and to identify and secure an appropriate agent to represent me. It is slow going but I am gradually making progress.
