The roots of the foundation go back to 2006, when concert pianist Adam Gyorgy gave master classes in Asia. He experienced incredible musical talent in extreme conditions. As Adam received so much help in his young age, he decided to give back and create an institution for music education in his home country, Hungary, and invited many talented children from around the world to participate and learn.
He provided scholarships to these young pianists to support their education and invited musical mentors to the Academy to encourage and support the students’ musical development.
The Adam Gyorgy Castle Academy began in the summer of 2009, in Adam’s home town of Pomaz. A close knit community immediately took shape around the spirit of the Academy, recruiting more and more talented individuals, students, and professors to support Adam’s vision.
The 2009 debut was followed by an even more successful reunion in 2010, one that greatly expanded support for the Academy and educated many on the Academy’s values and goals.
Today, the Academy stands as a thriving institution with top professors and students, attracting talented students from around the world to attend and improve their musical skills. The group of participants is expanding rapidly. Every year, participants return home from their time at the Academy with excitement in their hearts.
Our community of supporters produced a number of events to advance the mission of the Academy from Jakarta, Indonesia, through Singapore, and to New York.
The mission of the Academy inspired this community to create The Adam Gyorgy Foundation to support music education around the world, as well as helping to support talented students in their participation and learning.
