Citing inadequate training of developing young singers in the general institutional level and rapacious lesson fees in the private sector, The Rosa Ponselle Foundation has called our young generation of singers an ENDANGERED SPECIES threatened with EXTINCTION.

Calling a HALT to its fiduciary role in the nurturing and launching of promising young talents, The Rosa Ponselle Foundation shall remain on SABBATICAL from the competition circuit until such time as trainers have met the demands of the art half way.
