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 the 20/25 scholarships awarded annually as part of the Open Source project, made possible by the contribution of the 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. 2019/20:
- PIANOFORTE: Ricardo Castro, Andrea Lucchesini, Filippo Gamba, Pietro De Maria,
Enrico Pace, Gabriele Carcano, Giovanni Doria Miglietta, Daniela Carapelli
- VIOLINO: Lukas Hagen, Lucy Hall, Adrian Pinzaru
- VIOLA: Simone Briatore
- VIOLONCELLO: Marianne Chen, Claudio Pasceri
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 8/10 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 2018/2019 RAI season; 4 chamber music lessons at the Accademia di Musica taught by academy teachers.
Other scholarships are awarded thanks to contributions from the Fondazione Pezzetti-Sacco foundation, Rotary Club Pinerolo and the Zonta Club.
