About The Sullivan Foundation

The Foundation seeks exceptionally talented young singers who are still taking early steps, but, in the judgment of the screening panel, show promise for significant careers. Applicants must have completed their academic training, should have sung at least one professional engagement with full orchestral accompaniment, and must have a contract for a professional engagement with full orchestral accompaniment after the audition dates.

The next Sullivan Foundation auditions will be held in New York City on November 11 and 12. Applicants must be available one of those two dates (no callbacks). Several winners will receive Sullivan Awards of at least $10,000 and are eligible for additional Role Preparation Grants for the next five years.
