where the students meet the masters.

The CHIGIANA GLOBAL ACADEMY PROGRAM seeks to expand and integrate the artistic and educational activities of the Summer Academy and the Festival in existence since 1932.

It gives the young talented musicians – at the college and university level – the opportunity to study abroad with great masters and perform extensively in Italy.

The ideal participants, soloists or chamber musicians, are open minded students who are seeking to take a transformative and challenging role as artists in the 21st Century.

“The program provided me with some of the most incredible opportunities and challenged me as musician and as an individual each day.”
– Jade E., 2016

“You truly made our stay here great, and the opportunities you have given us are beyond what we could have imagined. This is a summer I will never forget!”
– Amelia J., 2015

“Masterclasses were wonderful and the teaching staff was fantastic.”
E.C., Student 2018
