Over the past decade, inspired by Georg Solti’s values, the GSA has built a reputation for professionalism, rigorous discipline and attention to detail. Solti believed that it was the duty of every great artist to pass on their skills, insight, and experience to the next generation. Since its inception, the Accademia has served as an educational home for some of the world’s best opera singers, conductors, and coaches to mentor the next generation of great opera singers and répétiteurs

It is in honour of Sir George Solti’s memory that many distinguished singers with whom he worked – including Mirella Freni, Kiri Te Kanawa, José Carreras, Leo Nucci, Luciana Serra, Daniela Dessi, Frederica von Stade, Mariella Devia, Thomas Allen and Angela Gheorghiu – have returned to pass on to the next generation the lessons they learnt as young artists.
