Jason Make – Finance Intern

Once a performer on-stage and now working behind it, Jason Make is a finance intern at Cape Town Opera – the second time he’s worked for an opera company. “In Umculo, I was part of the chorus. Being at Cape Town Opera brings back memories but now I’ve taken a different branch from where I was before,” the 24 year old said. His background in finance, accounting, bookkeeping and taxation has prepared him for his duties. 

Jason’s switch from performance to finance was made within the spirit of the arts. “Being in the office is very insightful. You need to be financially literate, even as a singer,” he says. In his free time, Jason soaks in the wardrobe department, seeing how things are done and getting a feel for the space. “I’m coming in as a cat and going out as a lion,” he says.
