ABOUT US

Claude Heater Foundation works to provide the resources to produce operas, concerts, and recitals; produce master classes to foster artistic and technical development of singers;. The foundation also seeks to provide artists with quality video and audio of their performances so that, in this media driven age, they have the professional materials so important to furthering their careers.
