Past AGMA Apprenticeships

The Apprentice Singer Program of The Santa Fe Opera is operated in agreement with The American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA). This agreement limits the eligibility of candidates to those persons who:

All new members must submit an application for membership and must pay the first of two $39 basic dues payments within one week of their first rehearsal in Santa Fe. The initiation fee (currently $500) is due to AGMA by the first contracted performance. If the new member is unable to pay the initiation fee on time, he/she must contact AGMA’s Membership Department by the end of the first week of rehearsals to arrange a payment plan. In addition, Working Dues calculated at 2% of the total compensation will be withheld and remitted to AGMA on each member’s behalf.
