Fresh from her win at the inaugural Glyndebourne Opera Cup last month, it was announced today that Samantha Hankey has been chosen as a recipient of the 2018 Richard Tucker Career Grant. This award of $10,000 is given to three American singers who have already embarked on major international singing careers. Already a favourite of the famed Richard Tucker Foundation, Samantha was previously awarded a Sara Tucker Study Grant in 2016, whilst studying at the Juilliard School.
