In memory of Giorgia Mileto, Saint Louis promotes the Call for the award of Scholarships to attend the 1st and 2nd level academic courses of the Departments of Jazz & Popular Music.
Press Office since 2002, Giorgia Mileto dedicated with passion to the organization of music teaching, music events and all the activities of Saint Louis, deeply involved in the growth not only of the AFAM Institute, but also of the many students who in years have attended, accompanying them from the first steps on stage and supporting them in their professional growth.
For this reason, Saint Louis, in agreement with the Mileto family, believes that the best way to remember the dear friend and colleague Giorgia is to reward the talent and dedication towards music of young musicians, promoting the establishment of scholarships that allow deserving students to attend 1st and 2nd cycle academic courses. 3 full scholarships will be awarded, which will cover the entire participation fee for a year of the course and will be renewed year after year, if maintaining the expected results in terms of exams taken and average marks.
In addition to the 3 full scholarships, the Commission may award additional partial scholarships to partially cover the participation fee for the courses.
The scholarships will be awarded through auditions also open to students external to Saint Louis for instrument and vocal courses of the Departments of Jazz & Popular Music.
To access the auditions, an audio and / or video recording (preferable) of two songs played in a group (duo, trio, quartet, etc.) must be sent. Based on the material received, a pre-selection of students admitted to the audition will be made. The auditions will be held in September with a resident band / orchestra to support all candidates.
The funds for the scholarships were raised through donations from Giorgia’s friends, musicians and family members for a total value of approximately € 6,200; Saint Louis offers an additional fund of the same amount for a total value of scholarships to be awarded equal to € 12,500.
The complete Regulations of the Call will be available shortly on the slmc.it website
