Verbier Festival 2022
The Verbier Festival 2022 will be held from 15 to 31 July in Verbier, Switzerland.
The Verbier Festival is an international classical music event that takes place each summer in the mountain town of Verbier, Switzerland. The Festival’s mission is to build a community of exchange between great masters and young artists from all over the world and to be a leader in its field by providing meaningful music education programmes.
Launched in 1994, and now globally renowned, the Festival welcomes audiences with a distinctive and exhilarating blend of events, both large-scale and intimate. Audiences from around the globe come to experience music-making at the highest level in a setting that brings them close to star performers, rising talent and a complete process of learning, rehearsal and performance.
The Festival’s Academy is its respiratory system—a laboratory where future talents are discovered and nurtured. It sets the gold standard for the training of emerging soloists, chamber and orchestral musicians, singers and conductors. Each summer, audiences witness these musicians in action at more than 100 masterclasses, rehearsals and performances. The Verbier Festival Orchestra has become a rite of passage for today’s exceptional young orchestral musicians and the Academy’s programmes for soloists, chamber musicians and singers include an impressive list of alumni from over 60 countries who have been engaged by the world’s leading concert presenters since their time in Verbier.
The Verbier Festival 2022 is committed to education and artistic and cultural engagement. Its work with the general public—and with young people in particular—is rooted in the belief that access to culture from an early age is key to self-confidence and respect for others.
Each summer in Verbier and throughout the year in Verbier and neighbouring communities, Unlimited—the Festival’s cultural engagement incubator—stimulates curiosity for arts and culture, with a focus on music.
