About Us

The mission of the Global Foundation of the Performing Arts is to provide valuable artistic education and professional support in service of those in the performing arts, while fostering a global community and enabling cross-cultural exchange.

The Foundation is dedicated to supporting the performing arts particularly in the realms of classical music and ballet through education, mentorship, collaboration and constructive competition. Young artists deserve professional guidance from mature musicians in order to remain true to their artistic practice.

The Foundation will provide advice to artists, competitions and institutions dedicated to rewarding the world's future performers.

“I have worked with talented emerging classical musicians for many years and have observed first-hand the invaluable impact of timely and considered advice in securing a career. Our Foundation will provide sufficient resources to allow young artists to reflect, to experiment with repertoire, and to learn skills to assist them realize their projects.” Benjamin Woodroffe, President
