The Medellín Philharmonic Academy is a school which makes up part of the Medellín Philharmonic Orquestra. The Academy serves the purpose of contributing to the professional development of young, talented and driven musicians located in Antioquia and all of Colombia. It was founded in 2008 thanks to an initiative started by Colombian director Alejandro Posada, under the artistic direction of Music Masters Pablo Mielgo and Roberto González.
This project offers financial support to talented music students with few economic resources located in Medellín and the metropolitan area, so that they may study at the Medellín Philharmonic Academy, the music department of EAFIT University, or abroad at the music department of an international university or music academy. The donation finances 12 scholarships and 16 paid spots in music camps or national and international music festivals.
