The Georg Solti Accademia di Bel Canto offers a unique training opportunity for young opera singers and pianists at the start of their careers. Created in 2004 in memory of the great Hungarian conductor Sir Georg Solti, and still led by Lady Solti, the Programme offers scholarships to eighteen outstanding international musicians. These young artists are invited to immerse themselves in the language and culture of Italy while devoting focused time to mastering the art of bel canto, and benefiting from masterclasses and mentorship given by leading opera singers, vocal coaches and repetiteurs.
The aim of the GSA is to attract the best young talent from anywhere in the world regardless circumstance, and to offer them training and opportunities as defined by the Solti mission: www.georgsoltiaccademia.org
