Mentor and Consultant
to Emerging Artists

While Executive Director of the Marilyn Horne Foundation, Ms. Hocher mentored and advised young, emerging singers in such areas as song and opera repertoire, recital programming, auditions, career, competitions, management, marketing, and attire.

Given this coupled with the more than three decades she has worked closely with celebrated, professional, aspiring, and amateur singers, she has a wealth of knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm to share with her private and college voice students, with participants in her master classes and lectures, and with competitors in voice competitions she adjudicates.

Ms. Hocher’s background in both performance and arts management makes her a unique source of information and guidance about careers and the business of the arts.
