The Richard Tucker Music Foundation, America’s preeminent opera foundation, founded in 1975, is a nonprofit cultural organization which honors the artistic legacy of the great American tenor through support of talented American opera singers and by bringing opera into the community.

The Tucker Foundation supports these artists through performance opportunities and presents community opera concerts and its celebrated annual gala at Carnegie Hall.
The featured singers for the evening are: soprano Gabriella Reyes de Ramirez (appearing multiple times at the Metropolitan Opera this season), tenor Joshua Guerrero (2016 Grammy Award-winner), mezzo-soprano Hannah Ludwig and baritone Theo Hoffman (a graduate of The Juilliard School). Accompanying the vocal talent will be pianist Lachlan Glen.
