4th of June, Budapest – The AmCham Foundation donated a special prize to Ákos Török, an aspiring virtuoso. The young artist received a free master course by Ádám György in order to realize his dream.
In 2016, one of the missions of the AmCham Foundation is to support disadvantaged talented musicians. We asked the successful television program Virtuózok and György Ádám Kastélyakadémia to choose a precious young talent who was not fortunate to make it into the show’s final. It is an especially great honor to support a cross-border Hungarian talent.
In addition to the special prize, we will organize a charity event for donations in October with the aim to help disadvantaged children who otherwise would not be able to pursue their dreams in music.
“Everyone is talented at something. It is my genuine pleasure that this year, we can help young musicians develop their skills through purposive and persistent practice in order to be able to perform above and beyond average levels.” said Edit Bencsik, member of the AmCham Foundation Supervisory Board.
The Kisvirtuózok Foundation is a community upholding the values and traditions of classical music. The goal of the Foundation is to promote classical music among the population and to support students in music education as well as other art initiatives.
The Ádám György Castle Academy was founded in 2009 with the aim to provide an opportunity for young pianists to develop their skills in Europe, the cradle of classical music. A creative community was formed in Pomáz, where great talents and patrons found each other. Students arrived from many different places, including the Juilliard Academy of New York, the Royal Academy of Music in London and the National University of Singapore.
The Adam Gyorgy Castle Academy is a 10 day, intensive and inspirational piano Academy in the heart of Europe with master classes of concert pianist Adam Gyorgy, Dr. Balazs Reti (Franz Liszt Academy of Music) and Professor Gyorgy Nador (Franz Liszt Academy of Music).
