Academy Angels

The American Bach Soloists ACADEMY was founded in 2010 with the purpose of providing mentorship and artistic support to those musicians who are seeking to bridge the gap between advanced conservatory, university, or personal studies and an emerging career, either as soloists, chamber musicians, or with professional Early Music institutions.

Since the ACADEMY's inaugural year, more than 600 participants have been admitted from around the world, representing Australia, Belgium, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Costa Rica, England, France, Germany, Hong Konk, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Republic of Singapore, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, the United States, and Venezuela.
