ATTENTION:  

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 worldwide, it has become necessary to suspend this year’s Academy and accompanying Festival.  We send our sincere thanks to our loyal audiences and aspiring young musicians who wished to attend this summer.  We are concerned most of all for your safety and continued health. Please join us again next year for a fabulous 2021 edition! 

 

Presented in partnership with the Chopin Foundation of the United States, the Frost Chopin Academy is offering pianists up to the age of 30, the opportunity to room and board for 8 days at the state-of-the-art facilities of the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, to exclusively immerse themselves in the works of Frederic Chopin and learn first-hand from the world’s most distinguished Chopin specialists.

4 Individual Lessons • Workshops • Concerto Audition • Performance Opportunities • Social Events & Outings

“…an incredible opportunity to watch and perform in masterclasses with the world’s top Chopin specialists.”
Talon Smith, 15, Fresno (Frost Chopin Academy student 2018)

4 Individual Lessons:

The Academy offers every participant lessons with each of our master teachers. Unlike the typical masterclass setting, these open sessions take the form of private lessons but take place in spacious rooms easily accessible to other students and auditors. All lessons focus on the works of Chopin.

Workshops/Lectures:

Throughout the week, the Academy will feature specialized workshops and lectures fashioned to help participants with specific issues surrounding the performance of Chopin’s works.  Our guest artists will also share their specialized knowledge of Chopin’s life and works in the form of lectures that will be open to the public.

Concerto Audition:

For those students who have prepared one of the two Chopin Piano Concertos, they may audition for a spot in the final concert to perform with the Tsenov Chamber Orchestra.

Performance Opportunities:

Simultaneous to the Academy, the Frost Chopin Festival offers daily concerts open to the public and featuring each and every Academy student as well as our teaching artists.

Social Events & Outings: 

Academy participantswill have the opportunity to mingle with their fellow students in informal settings as well as interact with students of other camps taking place at Frost.
