Monday November 17 was highlighted by the tenth annual gala benefitting an educational foundation established by the legendary America opera singer Martina Arroyo, who was born in Harlem 77 years ago, emerged as the greatest Puerto Rican spinto soprano in history, and enjoyed a lengthy career performing the heroines in many of Verdi's and Puccini's most beloved operas. 
For decades she remained in demand at many of the leading opera houses of the world, from Zurich, Hamburg, Berlin, Vienna, and Paris to San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, Buenos Aires, Milan's La Scala, London's Covent Garden, and of course New York's Metropolitan.
Following her retirement from the stage in 1991, she devoted her musical talents to teaching gifted students and to judging international competitions, having been drawn as a young girl to ballet and Broadway musicals, never expecting to become celebrated as one of the world's most renowned stars of the global opera scene. 
This inclination to guide and to develop young singers resulted in the creation of her foundation, for which such rising talents as Robert Kerr and Lawrence Brownlee performed select arias for the black tie guests during the charity soiree, which was co-hosted by broadcaster Midge Woolsey and show business author Brian Kellow.
Cecilia Teng served as Chair of the elegant evening, which featured a cocktail reception, a silent auction, a number of live performances, in particular by musician and composer Paquito D'Rivera and pianist Lloyd Arriola, and the presentation of a number of awards to such pillars of classical music as baritone Mark Rucker and his longtime coach and accompanist Sadie Rucker, fashion designer Nanette Lepore, and impresario Willie Anthony Waters.
Among the guests at the Essex House fundraiser were actress Tyne Daly, designer Rafael Sanchez, Edward Sadovnik, Beth Chang, Sandra Kungle, Sachi Liebergesell, Erica Feinberg, Susan Stout, and Michael Snider.
