Career Bridges mission is to help young opera singers launch their careers. For many years they have contributed to talented young opera singers realizing their dreams. 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, limited performance opportunities, and lack of guidance have stymied many of these extremely qualified singers in the pursuit of their careers, thus depriving us all of their potential greatness. 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 deportment. Further grants include career guidance, performance opportunities, and assistance in career promotion. Career Bridges provides mentoring, evaluating and further grants over a period of three years.
3 years of grants are provided to each individual singer based on the recommendations of their 25-member panel comprised of internationally recognized experts in repertory & vocal coaching; conductors; stage directors; artist managers/agents; opera company impresarios, et al. These grants include personal coaching in diction, language, repertory, and stage development. Further grants include career guidance, performance opportunities, opera workshops, and assistance in career promotions

Each grant winner is eligible for grants for a total of 3 years, and is re-evaluated by our Panel of Experts annually.  During these years they provide ongoing counseling, paid performance opportunities, concerts, school performances, and workshops in which our winners get their most valuable training - in that they bring to life on the stage what they have learned in the studio.  Our artistic staff mentor these performances.

For 19 years they have mentored over 180 grant winners in their unique 3-year Mentoring Program. Their program provides the “bridge” from the classroom world to the professional community for their winners – many of whom are now  on their way to productive singing careers around the world. They are committed to providing the unique level of tangible and practical support that will enable their young singers the opportunity to fulfill their potential and achieve the greatness that will enhance all our lives.
