Our Story

A woman-led organization, Sing for Hope was founded by Juilliard-trained sopranos Camille Zamora and Monica Yunus in response to the events of 9/11. Juilliard shares its city block with a firehouse that was a first responder that day, losing twelve of their men. That afternoon, and in the weeks and months that followed, Zamora and Yunus organized fellow students to share hope through music for the survivors and families.

Sing for Hope is our organization’s name.

  • Please note the capital S, lowercase f, and capital H.
  • In print and online, the abbreviation SFH may be used after the first instance of Sing for Hope.
