New York Festival of Song
New York Festival of Song (NYFOS) is a non-profit, concert-giving organization based in Manhattan that has been delighting audiences and dazzling critics for over two decades. Newsday has rightly called NYFOS “the most reliably excellent musical organization in New York.” NYFOS performances feature some of the world’s finest vocal talents, both established and emerging, in high-energy ensemble productions with repertoire ranging from art song and opera to Broadway and the blues. NYFOS also nurtures the artistry and careers of young singers in residencies with The Juilliard School, Caramoor Center for the Arts, San Francisco Opera, and Glimmerglass Opera.


Chicago Opera Theater
The Chicago Opera Theater (COT) is an opera company that was founded as the Chicago Opera Studio in 1974 by Alan Stone to give vocal students performance experience, although it has grown into a professional opera company. The stated mission of the COT is to provide first class productions of operatic repertoire that include the greatest works of the 17th through 20th centuries, and in the past it has had an emphasis on American composers and performers who sing in English. Currently, the COT extends the Chicago opera season by scheduling its performances after the Lyric Opera of Chicago’s season ends in spring.
