The Accademia di Musica di Pinerolo offers multiple opportunities for scholarships for advanced music training, made possible by the generosity of our partners and supporters.
First and foremost are up to 25 scholarships awarded annually as part of the Open Source project, made possible by the contribution of the Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo foundation. Then we have a special arrangement with the Conservatorio di Torino, whereby their students can follow the Accademia’s courses of advanced music training (after passing the requisite entrance exam) completely free of charge. They can complete our courses in parallel with their studies at the Conservatorio, and will be awarded CFU university credits recognised by the Conservatorio.
For A.A. 2021/22:
- PIANOFORTE: Pietro De Maria, Enrico Pace, Gabriele Carcano, Giovanni Doria Miglietta, Daniela Carapelli
- VIOLINO: Lukas Hagen, Lucy Hall, Adrian Pinzaru
- VIOLA: Simone Briatore
- VIOLONCELLO: Patrick Demenga
Professione Orchestra is the project for on-the-job orchestra training set up by Accademia di Musica di Pinerolo in collaboration with the RAI Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale. Every year up to 10 one-year scholarships are awarded to the best students in the 2 workshops, selected by the Artistic Committee. These students will then take part in a one-year course that will be completely free of charge as guaranteed by the scholarship. This course will consist of one instrument lesson per month for 4 months taught by a RAI section leader; participation in the orchestra rehearsals for 4 concerts in the RAI season; 4 chamber music lessons held in Accademia di Musica di Pinerolo taught by the section leaders from the RAI Orchestra Sinfonica; for the chamber music ensembles, one concert insert in the Concert Season of OSN Rai and another in the Concert Season of the Accademia di Musica.
Two scholarships are awarded thanks to contributions from the Fondazione Bracco for Postgraduate Specialist Courses in Music Performance – 3rd cycle.
Other scholarships are awarded thanks to contributions from the Fondazione Pezzetti-Sacco foundation, Rotary Club Pinerolo and the Zonta Club.
