Stefano Vignati - ILA Artistic Director

Artistic Director’s Welcome

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I’m excited and honored to officially announce the beginning of our Celebrations for the 30 Year's anniversary of the International Lyric Academy.

When I created this program 30 years ago in Rome, Italy, it was only a dream, and today it is a concrete reality that is still helping thousands of young Artists in developing their careers.

To commemorate our Anniversary, we are working hard to create a very special 2024 Season for you all. We hope you will join our International Lyric Academy summer program which will be full of Music and emotions. We encourage you to share it with your friends, to continue to support the growing of new generations of Musicians.

Stefano Vignati

Mission

Singers rarely make a direct jump from being a full-time student to launching a full-time professional career. 

 

International Lyric Academy was created to help facilitate that transition. 

 

Sometimes professional singers must remain poised and steady under pressure, and when they are fresh out of school they usually do not yet have enough experience to prove to opera companies that they have the confidence they need to turn their passion into a real job .

 

International Lyric Academy provide that experience as well as exposure to opera professionals who can help launch your career.

We want  help musicians find their place in the music industry by guiding them toward their own unique definition of success.
