“We are so honored to again be hosting this internationally recognized arts organization as we celebrate the end of our incredible sixth season,” said Patti Grimes, Executive Director of the Joshua M. Freeman Foundation. “The 2013 season was a significant step towards our goal of bringing quality arts experiences to Sussex County, and we are so grateful for the enthusiastic response we continue to receive from the community.”
The Washington National Opera will feature their Domingo-Cafritz Young Artists Program, which guides young singers, accompanists, conductors, and stage directors on the verge of international careers. The Program provides intensive study with renowned vocal and drama coaches, and offers voice lessons, language classes, career guidance and master classes from staff and guest artists. Each season, exceptionally promising professionals are selected from a pool of hundreds of applicants through a competitive audition process. Reflecting the international nature of the art form, current and past participants hail from the United States, China, Korea, Russia, Belgium, Mexico, Germany, Spain, Colombia, Georgia, the Dominican Republic and Australia. Graduates of the program have gone on to successful careers that include appearances at the world's leading opera houses.
This latest event that is being held at Delaware Technical & Community College is part of a continued partnership between the DTCC & The Freeman Foundations, whom are both committed to bringing rich cultural experiences to the area while also giving back to their communities.
