Carnegie Hall - The song continues

A program of recitals and master classes for international singers presented by Carnegie Hall and the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations.

The Edmond de Rothschild Foundations actively engage with prestigious institutions that share their commitment to excellence and social empowerment.

The Song Continues

Created in New York City in 1997 by renowned mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne through her foundation, The Song Continues is a program designed for aspiring professional vocalists. In 2010, the programs of the foundation became a part of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute thus becoming the Marilyn Horne Legacy at Carnegie Hall.

The annual series of master classes that take place in the United States celebrate and preserve the art of the vocal recital, and serve as a forum for nurturing talented young singers. Led by renowned artists, including Renée Fleming, Jessye Norman, and James Levine, this program culminates in recitals performed by gifted emerging artists and a concert featuring both exceptional young artists and celebrated artists such as Joyce DiDonato, Susan Graham and Martin Katz.

These powerful experiences create an environment that fosters lifelong relationships and invite young artists to explore song repertoire and connect with audiences.
 

Master classes in Paris for emerging artists, a French-American initiative

For the first time, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute has presented The Song Continues in Paris in partnership with the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations.

In the Paris residency, six international young singers and two piano accompanists have been selected through a rigorous application and audition process to participate in a weeklong series of master classes led by Marilyn Horne and collaborative pianist Martin Katz, from December 1-5, 2014.

The classes and coaching sessions were held at Studio Bastille, with the generous support of Atelier Lyrique, Opéra national de Paris, and concluded with a stunning salon-style concert at Musée Jacquemart-André on December 4 and a second performance for students at Studio Bastille on December 5. The artists sang excerpts from works by European and American composers.
