Marilyn HorneIn 1993, world-renowned mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne founded The Marilyn Horne Foundation to encourage, support, and preserve the art of the vocal recital through the presentation of recitals and related educational activities in communities across the United States. Ms. Horne was eager to give young vocal recitalists the recital opportunities she had early in her career, which helped in shaping her artistry.

As of July 1, 2010, the programs of the Marilyn Horne Foundation became part of the Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall. With Marilyn Horne as the Artistic Advisor, these programs will continue the work of the foundation and will be part of the Marilyn Horne legacy at Carnegie Hall.

Through the presentation of recitals, residencies, concerts, radio broadcasts, educational outreach, and song commissions, the Marilyn Horne Foundation impacted many people, including:

  • 114 exceptionally gifted young singers selected via audition and presented in recitals and educational programs around the country
  • More than 66,000 children across the US via 774 school programs
  • 70,607 audience members at recitals and master classes
  • More than three million radio listeners nationwide via syndicated broadcasts
  • 420,000 radio listeners annually in the Tri-State area via local broadcasts, and tens of thousands more via international webcasts
  • 54 concert presenters in 29 states that presented 348 recitals and brought song and gifted young artists to their communities
  • 165 college students from leading national music schools selected by audition to participate in public master classes
  • 10 composers commissioned to write original songs or song cycles to be given their world premieres by Marilyn Horn Foundation artists
