"I'll never forget
seeing Stephanie Blythe
in NYFOS's 10th
anniversary gala in 1998!
Sylvia McNair and
Susan Graham were there
too! It was such a
revelation to hear
these incredible
artists at the start

of their breathtaking
careers, and in
such an intimate setting.
NYFOS galas are always so
entertaining, but
that was an especially
thrilling night! "

Spring Gala:

Cream of the Crop!

Monday, March 30, 2015, 7pm
Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall

with dinner and additional performances to follow at '21' Club

Hear the stars of tomorrow today in a spectacular gala evening celebrating New York Festival of Song's Emerging Artists programs! Over the past decade, NYFOS has taken a growing interest in mentoring, coaching, and nurturing some of the most promising young vocalists of our era. Many opera programs exist for young artists but there are very few that focus only on the art of song. It is the most exposed and direct kind of performing—no costumes of make-up to mask one's vulnerability—just the musicianship, intelligence, and honesty of the singer. Over 100 young talents have participated in NYFOS residencies and some of our most distinguished alumni will appear in the gala, including Paul Appleby, John Brancy, Julia Bullock, Theo Lebow and Annie Rosen.
