Camille Zamora is the Co-Founding Director of Sing for Hope, the country’s leading “artists’ peace corps” charitable organization, which mobilizes professional artists in volunteer service to uplift and transform communities in need. Sing for Hope’s programs – such as NYC’s beloved Sing for Hope Pianos – benefit under-resourced schools, hospitals and communities, and make art available to all.

Established in 2006 by Camille and fellow soprano Monica Yunus (who became close friends while in the Master’s Degree program at The Juilliard School), Sing for Hope is now the go-to resource for New York City-based artists who wish to volunteer their talents to benefit the underserved. Led by an experienced staff and mobilizing a roster of more than 1000 artists from a broad range of artistic disciplines, Sing for Hope unites artists and communities, bringing the transformative power of art to those who need it most.
