Great style and technique

I'm a better artist now

A wonderful family


I had the best time at the Accademia and realise that the people have absolutely made it for me. It was such a great group and I felt privileged to be one of them. If this was a 3 month programme that would literally be a singer’s paradise!

I definitely consider the Georg Solti Accademia to be one of the best experiences in my operatic journey thus far.  The teachers and coaches were of a very high quality. All the information we received from them was extremely valuable and I feel I have learnt a lot.  I loved the opportunity to work with Carmen Giannatasio, her visits were a highlight for me.

The Georg Solti Accademia has been one of the most beneficial things I have ever done. If I could do this once a year, I think I’d be the best singer I could be. The stand out class of the course was Carmen’s, she said some very interesting and useful things. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to learn in Castiglione and I will remember it my entire life.
