Young Artist Mark Diamond is a 2010 recipient of the prestigious Richard F. Gold Career Grant.

 Diamond performed this summer as Top in The Tender Land and covered the role of Araspe in Tolomeo. Some of his past engagements include Bob in The Old Maid and The Thief at Capitol City Opera and Dr. Gregg in Gallantry and the Count in The Marriage of Figaro at Georgia Southern Opera. He was also a Southeastern Regional Finalist in the 2010 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. He is currently continuing his studies for a Master of Music at the University of Cincinnati-College Conservatory of Music.

The Richard F. Gold Career Grant, which assists young, gifted American singers with their career development, was established by the Will of Richard F. Gold. The Shoshana Foundation annually awards The Richard F. Gold Career Grant to young singers through music schools and opera apprenticeship programs.
