    What does an academy post consist of? Is it paid

    • Colin (W6) says:

      The Berlin Staatskapelle website says: “The academy is open to university graduates (minimum required: Bachelor) and post-graduates under the age of 27 years, and offers a monthly scholarship of 1.176 EUR over a period of two years.”

      Yes it is paid. And comes with a chance of joining the Staatskapelle at a later point in time.
