With Ellen Mawhinney and John Porter

In 2020, we established the new Blackwater Valley Festival Opera Bursary Recital Award. This annual €10,000 award was founded with the support of a private donor. Bursary winners are selected by our Artistic Director, Dieter Kaegi, and encouraged to use funding to further their musical education and performing ability. We are delighted to welcome 2022 BVOF Bursary winners, soprano Ellen Mawhinney and tenor John Porter to perform at Tourin House, Cappoquin, Co. Waterford.
