In her three decades plus career as an opera singer, Martina Arroyo has achieved one highlight after another. She's performed all over the world as a celebrated spinto soprano, including over 200 performances at the Met Opera with three opening nights to her credit. She's worked with top conductors like Leonard Bernstein and has performed the repertory of Mozart and Strauss, to name a few. Ms. Arroyo's hard work and immense talent has been recognized by her peers with a 2010 NEA Opera Honors Award and a Kennedy Center Honor three years ago. Although the Harlem native ofﬁcially retired in 1989, it hasn't stopped her from using her legacy to educate others. In 2003, she established the Martina Arroyo Foundation, which fosters excellence in young opera singers in an educational setting. Kudos to Ms. Arroyo for allowing her expertise and command to inspire a new generation. This podcast also features an interview with the Foundation's music director, Maestro Willie Anthony Waters.
