Deadlines to apply

February 6, 2017. You will automatically be considered for a scholarship if you apply before that date and if all of the audition material has been received.

April 6, 2017. Without scholarship, acceptances according to available places.

Successful applicants will have to pay 50% of the fees within 14 days after the reception of the acceptance letter in order to reserve their place.

The full balance must be paid before May 4, 2017. In case of cancellation, the first payment is non-refundable. The second payment can be reimbursed if the student notifies the Admission Coordinator by e-mail at admissions@orford.mu, at the latest one month (30 days) before the first day of the stay. A $50 administration fee will then be deducted from the amount.

If a medical problem beyond your control prevents you from taking part in the Orford Music Academy, your deposit may be used for the subsequent year when a medical certificate is provided. However, you will have to go through the full audition process and be accepted again. If a scholarship was granted to you, it is not transferable to the following year.

From July 24-28, attend the semi-finals and the grand finale of the second edition of the Orford Music Award, and participate by sharing your opinion with us!

This friendly competition consists of a short performance given by each of the top 12 students of the Orford Music Academy at three evenings of semi-finals, and includes various classes and training activities throughout the week. The finalists selected by the jury will perform at the grand finale on July 28, where a second jury will choose the winner of the Orford Music Award. The winner will receive several prizes, including an invitation to perform at the 2018 Festival, a private meeting with agents and a professional recording session. A number of other prizes will be awarded, including the “Coup de coeur” award bestowed on the musician who receives the most votes from the audience. Don’t forget to cast your vote for your favourite artist!

This competition, a true springboard to international opportunities for our students, is part of Wonny Song’s vision to support the next generation of musicians as they develop their careers. The event is an opportunity for these young people to stand out and get noticed by various key players from the cultural scene such as artists’ agents and recording companies attending the competition.
