It has been clear to our students and faculty that when the very best of both cultures, that of Mexico and that of the United States, work together, the results are exceptional. Before our partnership with the San Miguel MetOpera Trust, we did not understand how to prepare our students adequately for competitions at an international level. The outstanding group of North American and Mexican maestros you created have shown us the way to change that. Last year [2021], for the first time, four of our graduates went on to postgrad studies in the USA.
