Goal: $6 million
The next generation of opera stars.
The HGO Studio has become one of the most highly recognized and respected young artist programs in the world since its founding in 1977. The program’s purpose—investing in exceptional talent to develop extraordinary artists—has been validated by the achievements of our illustrious alumni in opera houses all over the world. One of the HGO Studio’s strengths is its integration with the company as a whole and the opportunities it offers young artists to work and train alongside established and experienced artists and staff. We are committed to providing the highest quality training available anywhere.
The time is ripe to expand the Studio’s activities by developing additional summer opportunities for HGO Studio artists; by developing curricula for conductors, directors, and designers; by expanding the Young Artists Vocal Academy (YAVA) for college-age singers; and by increasing the number of performance opportunities for HGO Studio artists.
The best talent of the next generation of opera stars will have the finest training available anywhere, and Houston audiences will see them as they mature into greatness.
