Each year, hundreds of young singers audition for a spot in the world-renowned HGO Studio young artist training program. The final round of this rigorous competition is our annual Concert of Arias—a treasured tradition for our audience and artists alike!

This year, live auditions were cancelled.

Theaters went dark.

Travel was forbidden.

Dreams and livelihoods were on the line.

For HGO, an indefinite future was not an option. We lead a collaboration with opera companies around the country to streamline virtual auditions for HGO Studio hopefuls.

And so, on Friday, February 5, 2021, in its 33rd year, the Concert of Arias will live on!

JOIN US! While we can‘t fill the theater with your “Bravos!” this season, we will bring these brilliant artists’ voices to you via an interactive Live Stream. You will have front row, high-def seats to the Concert of Arias— including backstage action and insights—in the comfort of your home, bunker, or bungalow.

A variety of unique benefits and experiences are available to Concert of Arias supporters. Your support is absolutely critical to the HGO Studio and future voices on our stage.

TUNE IN ON FEBRUARY 5! Vote for your favorite singer! Share messages and compare notes with friends. Host an intimate, bespoke watch party in your home (reserved for select contribution levels).

Please consider a gift that says you know the stakes. You know the curtain will rise again—and we will be there—because you never gave up.
