About the George London Foundation:
"The George London Foundation for Singers is a non-profit organization which has been giving awards to outstanding young professional opera singers during their early careers, often a financially difficult time. George London, remembering his own struggle, wished to make the road to success a little easier for future generations of singers. Initially created under the auspices of the National Opera Institute with the support of the National Endowment of the Arts, the awards program has been administered since 1990 by the Foundation in New York as a living legacy to George London's talent and generosity.
The Foundation sponsors an annual juried competition in New York City for American and Canadian singers and more that $75,000 is awarded annually to the most promising performers. The Foundation also began a series of concerts in collaboration with the Morgan Library & Museum in New York in 1995. Each season consists of three recitals pairing one well known artist with a young emerging George London Award winner. With these concerts, the Foundation has sponsored the New York debuts of many award winners."
