Next generation orchestra academy for the Americas & beyond.
AT A GLANCE
We find, prepare, and empower the most exceptional rising musicians in the Western Hemisphere, and connect them with audiences around the world. Through high-impact tours, immersive international residencies, a commitment to community engagement, and innovative online training platform – we present the future of the Americas-led movement of music for social development.
We pioneered the world’s most transparent platform for identifying top rising musicians from Patagonia to the Arctic Circle. And we innovated a way to pack the equivalent of 12 months of world-class conservatory training into 6 weeks on our movable campus.

Of 5,000+ musicians who start the audition process, the 80 selected to participate are a hemispheric showcase of the Americas, embodying the talent of more than 25 nations.
