This week, Arizona Opera's opera studio director Allen Perriello was named director of the Glimmerglass Festival's Young Artists Program. The Glimmerglass Festival's Young Artists Program promotes an artistically challenging environment for young performers.

Beginning in summer 2017, Perriello will oversee Glimmerglass Festival's Young Artists Program comprised of 45 singers, a trio of pianists, two conductors and four stage directors.

"Allen [Perriello] has an innate ability to foster vocal talent, combining his warm personality and genuine concern for young singers with his great professionalism and talent as a musician."
