Since 2004, the Georg Solti Accademia has given hundreds of singers a unique insight into Italian opera style, and over 50 young repetiteurs an immersion in their art. We want the next generation of talented singers and pianists to have this opportunity too, regardless of their nationality, background or ability to pay.
Philanthropic giving is an investment in the world around us. Here at the Accademia, your charitable giving is invested directly into the education of some of the most promising young opera singers and repetiteurs in the world. Your gift helps these young musicians to gain the training, experience, and network they need to build their careers, thereby ensuring that outstanding musicians continue to bring their talent and creativity to opera.
Each scholarship at the Accademia costs 10,000 Euros for a singer and 5,000 Euros for a repetiteur.

Starting in the summer of 2023, we are thrilled to offer a brand-new mini course - the Alumni Bel Canto Course. This 4-day long refresher course is an ideal opportunity for our alumni to return to Castiglione della Pescaia for a short, intense period of study helping them to prepare upcoming roles and/or continue their artistic & technical development under the care of the GSA's Artistic Director Jonathan Papp, and Associate Director Jonathan Palmer Lakeland. Alumni can apply via email, and selected by the Accademia's core team based upon needs and merit. As with all our other courses, this opportunity will be offered free to the alumni that are selected. There is no application fee to apply.
The Accademia frequently collaborates with artistic organizations and festivals around the world to offer paid performance opportunities to its alumni. It has contributed to and presented programmes at venues including: Wigmore Hall; The Verbier Festival; Carnegie Hall (with Valery Gergiev and the World Orchestra for Peace); Symphony Hall in Chicago (with Valery Gergiev); The Juilliard School; Festival Hall; Victoria Hall (Geneva); the Orchestre de Chambre de Geneve, the Morellino Classica Festival, and many more.
