Helping Young Opera Singers
Launch Their Careers

About Us

Career Bridges’ mission is to help young opera singers launch their careers. Many extraordinarily gifted young operatic singers complete their formal training but are not yet fully prepared for a career; lack of good training in many areas, lack of funds for further study, and limited performance opportunities have stymied many of these extremely qualified singers in the pursuit of their careers.

Based on the recommendations of a 20-25 member panel of experts, Career Bridges provides grants for coaching in voice, diction, language, repertory, and stage presence. Further, grants include career guidance, performance opportunities, and assistance in career promotion. We continue to provide mentoring, evaluation, and additional grants for a period of three years.

We have successfully launched our Career Bridges outreach program to the schools titled “Kids Love Opera!”. In the past, we have performed for over 15 schools in Westchester County, NY, reaching more than 2,000 “kids”. The response has been overwhelmingly positive.

Career Bridges is fulfilling three main functions: giving performance opportunities, providing income to our grant winners, and introducing the world of opera to children who have, for the most part, never heard classical music before.
