About us

What is the goal of the academy?

MusicAlp Academy was founded in 1999. It is a non-profit organization under the association law of 1901. The members work as volunteers throughout the year.
The academy brings together professors and students from all over the world for the common goal of promoting music by high-level cultural and educational activities. By same means, it encourages exchanges between the professionals and music-lovers.
The teachers transmit their know-how and knowledge to students through teaching and performing in the festival. Students perform in their class concerts as well as in the Auditorium which are open to all public.
