Why I support Glyndebourne’s education work

Posted On by

Glyndebourne’s education work is made possible through the generosity of our supporters. We’d like to thank everyone who has helped make our education programmes the success they are.

Here three donors tell us why they chose to support our education programmes.


‘Making a contribution towards Glyndebourne Academy means I can share my love of Glyndebourne with young people looking for direction to develop their abundant musical gifts. I take great delight in the knowledge that I might be helping to support one of the opera stars of tomorrow!’
—Dora Brennan, supporter of Glyndebourne Academy

‘Engaging young people from all walks of life in opera not only provides an early exposure to the art form but encourages development of confident interpersonal skills, so important in today’s world.’

All donations to our education work, big or small, are warmly received.

Help us inspire a love of music in people of all ages through a year-round programme of activities designed to engage people from all backgrounds with the joys of opera.
