Support

The Music Academy of the West’s 140 young, exceptional fellows train with renowned teaching artists on full-scholarship during our annual Summer School & Festival, which provides the entire community with world-class performances, masterclasses, and more at affordable ticket prices (with all 7-17 year olds free) as part of our Community Access Initiative. It’s your support that makes it all possible.

I was inspired by the creative, diverse, and inspirational Academy community… being a member of the Council of Contributors is exciting, enriching, and prudent, supporting the future of performing arts. The operations model is top level, visionary, and sustainable, and the results are apparent in world-class performances and the Academy’s far-reaching influence.

— Georgia Lynn, Council Member & Compeer
