The Académie du Festival d’Aix is a centre of excellence for vocal and instrumental training, a platform for reflecting, experimenting and creating opera and innovative forms, and a place that caters for the professional development of young artists.
The voice comes in all forms at the Académie du Festival d’Aix, whose main task is to train and promote tomorrow’s artists! It allows yric artists to study a given repertoire (Mozartian and Lied, contemporary vocality, etc...) working on style, technique and interpretation during master classes and encounters with renowned specialists.
The Académie du Festival d’Aix offers training residencies for established piano trios and string quartets. These residencies are supervised by top-notch tutors and passionate chamber musicians and play a highly successful part in the heart of the Festival, combining artistic projects of many different shapes and forms.
The place given to contemporary creation and interaction between artists at the Festival d’Aix is a real catalyst of creativity and innovation. The Opera Creation Workshop programme is part of this approach and offers young artist composers, creators and performers the chance to tackle issues related to creation and the interdisciplinary nature that is specific to opera.

For 30 years now, the MYO transmitted the pleasure of performing the symphonic repertory composed for large orchestras, and has placed creation and intercultural exchanges at the heart of its programmes.
L’Académie du Festival d’Aix-en-Provence offers upcoming professional musicians and singers a training which focuses on transmission, introduction and music discovery issues.
