In the spring of 2013 dell’Arte Opera Ensemble proudly announced the creation of the annual Osgood/dell’Arte Opera Ensemble Prizes, funded by board member, Robert Osgood. Prizes awarded through Mr. Osgood’s generosity over three seasons totalled $20,000. Awards were made for exceptional auditions, and more often given to singers who who exemplified the spirit of the program with their work in coachings, master classes, rehearsals and performances.
Board member Marin Jeivin pledged a new Encouragement Award to be given to a deserving participant of the 2016 Season, and dell’Arte Opera Ensemble hopes to continue the tradition of rewarding exceptional work in the program with sponsorship from other individuals. We invite inquiries from interested sponsors for prizes to be awarded starting with the 2019 program. Naming opportunities are of course available.
