About the Joan & Richard Bonynge Foundation:
The Foundation’s aim is to financially assist, nurture and support our next generation of young opera singers and to perpetuate the Sutherland/Bonynge legacy of excellence in the field of opera. The Foundation was established in 2010 having grown from the work of the Joan Sutherland Society which was established in 1978. Since inception over $800,000 has been award in the form of scholarships and grants for young singers, many of whom have gone to have international and national careers in opera. In 2019, among the year’s highlights, the Foundation will present the ninth annual Bel Canto Award, the 3rd annual Sydney International Song Prize and sixth annual Elizabeth Connell Prize for aspiring Dramatic Sopranos.
