Sponsor a Young Artist or Summer Intern

Young Artist Sponsorship

The Glimmerglass Festival Young Artists Program is considered one of the finest singer-training programs in America. Sponsors get to know their singers, follow their careers once they leave the program and often stay in touch for years. At this early stage of a singer’s career, being sponsored also provides valuable personal encouragement. Interested sponsors receive information on each class of singers and staff works with the sponsors to match the right talent to the right patron. Individual Young Artist Sponsorships: $10,000

Summer Intern Sponsorship

Each season, Glimmerglass engages approximately 60 interns in all areas of company operations, from artistic and administrative to production. Participants are theater arts and administration students and graduates, who receive housing and stipends as well as the invaluable experience of working alongside top industry professionals. Individual Intern Sponsorships: $5,000
