The Thirteen offers these vocal fellowships to early career singers from diverse racial, ethnic, cultural, or other demographic groups that are significantly underrepresented among professional singers of vocal ensemble and oratorio music. With this program The Thirteen aims to play a role in diversifying our field by providing fellows with a high-level music making experience, mentorship, and connections within the field. This fellowship will be an inclusive, welcoming experience and is aimed at singers who are enrolled in or have recently completed their undergraduate or graduate education and aspire to be professional vocal ensemble and oratorio singers. The Thirteen has a history of addressing important social issues of the day through its programming, including cli- mate change, migration, and systemic racism. We frequently work with diverse composers and performing mu- sicians. Fellowship recipients will rehearse, perform, and tour (if applicable) with The Thirteen from February 6- 13, 2022. They will be an integral part of this concert week, performing with the twelve singers of The Thirteen in concerts featuring works by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Trevor Weston, Caroline Shaw, and Benjamin Britten.
