George London Foundation to Honor Nora London in Concert Performance

By David Salazar

The George London Foundation is set to present “Nora London – A Celebration” on Sept. 18, 2022.

The showcase, which will take place at The Morgan Library & Museum in New York City, will honor the foundation’s founder, who passed away on June 23, 2022. Among the performers will be former George London Award winners. There will also be remarks from family and friends.

London was married to legendary baritone George London and served as President of the George London Foundation for Singers after his passing in 1985.

“Our mother had a grand passion for opera that was matched by her deep knowledge of the art,” said Marina London, Vice President of the George London Foundation, in a statement following Nora London’s passing in June. “She kept the Foundation going after the death of George London and helped two generations of opera singers through its many activities. She was the matriarch of our family and in many ways of the opera world. We will continue the work of the Foundation in her honor.”

Admission is free with an advanced reservation. Those unable to attend will be able to live stream the event via the foundation’s official website. There will be a reception following the event.
