THE MARILYN HORNE FOUNDATION - bringing the art of vocal recital into the 21st century
The foundation was launched at Carnegie Hall on Marilyn Horne's 60th birthday in January 1994. Its mission: to encourage young talent and nurture audiences for the art of vocal recital, which is accomplished through four programs:
* Artist residencies: The foundation through partnerships with local presenters across the country, provides co-sponsorship grants that enable the presenter to produce recitals and educational programs featuring young artists who have been selected by foundation advisors and further trained in classical song through the foundation's educational programs.
* Radio Broadcast Series, On Wings of Song: A vocal recital series inaugurated in 1995 featuring foundation artists, presented once a month from September through May on Sunday afternoons at The Kosciuszko Foundation, hosted by Marilyn Horne and 96.3 FM WQXR's June Le Bell, and rebroadcast the following Saturday evening.
* Mini-festival, The Song Continues...: Started in January 1997, and held in association with the Juilliard School each January thereafter, the festival consists of master classes by Ms. Horne and other celebrated artists, seminars, and the foundation's annual recital hosted by Ms. Horne with well known artists and rising stars as guest performers.
* New York City Educational Outreach: A new music education program consisting of informal lecture demonstrations featuring the foundation's young artists and pianists. Partners include The Children's Aid Society Chorus, the Frederick Douglass Academy, Dream Yard Dram project, and Education through Music.

The foundation, which is supported by donations from individuals, foundations, corporations and government entities in 27 states an 7 countries, has as of the start of the millennium presented 40 young singers in 83 recitals in 16 states, awarded 36 grants to concert presenters across the US, and conducted 118 educational programs.
