MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, September 18, 2008 13 NEWS Set for stardom ZILKA GROGAN Opera star Clarissa Spata. CLARISSA Spata has been singing since the age of seven and may soon be rewarded for all her hard work. The 27-year-old opera star is one of six finalists from around the country in the running for the 2008 Lady Fairfax New York Scholarships. The winner of the scholarship, which is offered by the Opera Australia Foundation, will receive $43,000 and the opportunity to study with internationally renowned vocal and movement coaches. Ms Spata has had a busy schedule in the lead up to the announcement. She was travelling to Hong Kong next week with her vocal group, Encore. ''I'll be performing a lot to make sure I'm comfortable and ready,'' she said. ''The more you're on stage, the more comfortable you are.'' The Newington resident is glad to count her fellow finalists as close friends. ''(Finalist) Natalie Aroyan is a really good friend of mine, she's like a sister to me,'' Spata said. ''It is prestigious to be picked and a real honour but when you've got such a good friend standing next you it just makes it all better.'' The winner will be announced at the final recitals next Sunday at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music following a public recital by the six finalists.
