About this Website

The Hampsong Foundation website is structured for three types of visitors: the student beginning a journey into the world of song, the experienced listener looking to access and augment his or her knowledge, and the casual visitor who found the experience of a song recital new and is curiously intrigued by the art form of song and its communicative possibilities.

Most importantly, the Hampsong Foundation website is a repository for high quality digital multimedia materials relating to song, available in full, for free, to all visitors. From the archives of the Salzburg Festival projects to sections devoted entirely to the songs of Mahler and Schubert to the expansive Song of America project, the site includes full concert programs, song texts and translations, essays, historic images, and selected audio recordings and videos. You can watch vocal and instrumental master classes, listen to interviews and lectures, and experience special events from your own computer. Happy browsing!
