Welcome to Accademia Belcanto

Accademia Belcanto is a summer academy in Graz, founded by the mezzo-soprano Natela Nicoli in 2014 and held so far in a biennial rhythm.

The central event of the academy is an international singing competition, which was last held with great success in 2018. Last year, the competition could not take place due to the Corona crisis.

Since restrictions on cultural events still do not allow concert performances, master classes and coaching courses in 2021, we will probably not be able to offer our program until late August/early September 2022 at the earliest.

As soon as the situation changes, we will publish the latest information on our homepage. Thank you for your understanding.
