For many of our Resident Artists, the Academy of Vocal Arts is much more than an opera training institute—it’s a family. And it’s patrons like you who make these artists feel at home. Since its inception in 1934, the Academy of Vocal Arts has been a bastion of world-class operatic training. AVA Resident Artists—tomorrow’s leading performers—depend on us to provide the unique environment, outstanding faculty, and top-notch facilities that foster the development of great singers. They need donors like you—who care deeply about the future of opera—to invest in their training.
We welcome your interest in supporting the Academy of Vocal Arts’ Raising Our Voices campaign. You can participate through a naming gift, a planned gift, or a multi-year pledge. Our donor services staff are pleased to share with you the full details and impact of the campaign, and to discuss with you the ways in which you see yourself becoming involved in this important project.
