Who we are

Olga Iglesias Project, established as a nonprofit organization dedicated to arts education and registered under as a 501(c)(3) and PR1101 entity, educates the Puerto Rican school community and the public through a series of educational recitals on the classical vocal genre, its history, and styles. We use the historical collection of Olga Iglesias, a renowned Puerto Rican soprano, and the educational materials from the Metropolitan Opera’s Education Department, thanks to a collaborative agreement with this prestigious organization.

The facilitators of the educational recitals, who are professional-level singers accepted into the Olga Iglesias Project Fellowship program, also perform live demonstrations of Puerto Rican and traditional repertoire, accompanied by a pianist. These resources are used with the fundamental purpose of enriching the youth with knowledge of Puerto Rico’s deep cultural heritage and vast talent in this field.
