In addition to the The Martina Arroyo Foundation’s Tuition-Free program, stipends are offered for their 2017 season. Full stipends are from $2,500 to $500 depending on the particular role. All will be determined by the Prelude to Performance Artistic Staff.
The program is open to opera singers ages 20–35. The applicants must have sufficient vocal experience and stamina to handle the course of study and performance demands and will be selected through an audition process by Ms. Arroyo and her artistic staff. Recommendations from two professionals must accompany each application.
