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.

The Georg Solti Accademia’s courses are merit-based training programmes which provide full scholarships (including tuition, accommodation, and meal expenses) to all of its students.
With an acceptance rate of only 6%, we aim to support the best young musicians we can find from around the world. We provide our training for free to ensure that these young musicians’ financial positions do not act as a barrier to their receiving the education and support they require.
At the Georg Solti Accademia, your donation plays a more direct and substantial role in the lives of young musicians than with most other organisations. As a result, donors to the Accademia get to know these young artists more personally, and enjoy a wide-array of benefits tailored to their giving level.
The Fondation Georg Solti Accademia is a Swiss-based non-profit. Tax-deductible receipts can be provided for Swiss, British, and USA residents.
To make a gift please complete the form below which will take your contact information, desired donation amount, tax-deductible letter requirements, and other information. After this is complete, a member of the Accademia's leadership team will be in touch with instructions on how to process your donation.
