  • Founded in 1977 by composer Carlisle Floyd and HGO's then-General Director David Gockley, the mission of the HGO Studio is to provide comprehensive career development to young artists who have demonstrated potential to make major contributions to the field of opera. The Studio's goal is to develop well-rounded professionals by providing the highest quality training combined with a wide range of performance opportunities.

    One of the most respected young artist programs in the world, the HGO Studio is distinguished from many other young artist programs in the level of integration between the Studio members and main stage artists and production teams. From the beginning, Studio artists have been granted generous performance opportunities working alongside such renowned singers as Renée Fleming, Susan Graham, Joyce DiDonato, Karita Mattila, Dolora Zajick, Ramón Vargas, and Samuel Ramey, as well as renowned conductors, directors, and designers.

    Joyce Di Donato "My time in the Houston Grand Opera Studio was invaluable in bridging the gap between my college/conservatory education, and my leap onto the professional stage. The Studio provided every opportunity for me to succeed, guiding the growth of my artistry and giving me the chance to develop my own voice in a most demanding field. I will always consider Houston Grand Opera my home stage."  – Joyce DiDonato, HGO Studio artist 1996-98
