Resident Artists

AVA’s Resident Artists truly are the “voices of tomorrow.” Since 1980, over 50 AVA alums have joined the Metropolitan Opera’s roster and AVA alumni are heard in the world’s great opera houses every season.

Last year, AVA Resident Artists took First or Top Prize in several prestigious vocal competitions: Loren L. Zachary National Vocal Competition, Giulio Gari Foundation Competition and Southwest Vocal Competition (fourth-year soprano Vanessa Vasquez); Licia Albanese-Puccini Foundation International Vocal Competition (fourth-year soprano Vanessa Vasquez (top); Violetta; National Competition for VOICE (fourth-year bass-baritone Daniel Noyola). Fourth-year soprano Vanessa Vasquez was a 2017 winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.

Our current roster includes singers from around the world – Australia, Canada, China, France, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland and the United States.
