About the Amateur Chamber Music Week
Over the week leading up to the Festival, talented musicians of all ages can indulge their passion for chamber music and receive invaluable advice by professional coaches.
The Verbier Festival’s Amateur Chamber Music Week is a unique opportunity for talented and enthusiastic amateur musicians. Over the course of a week, participants work with coaches selected from the Verbier Festival Academy alumni as well as Gábor Takács-Nagy, founder of the Takács Quartet and Music Director of the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra, pianist Paul Coker, Sasha Calin, principal oboe of the Mozarteum Orchester, Salzburg, Thomas Gould, leader of the Aurora Orchestra and Britten Sinfonia and Verbier Festival Academy Laureate, and Eniko Magyar, viola player and Verbier Festival Academy Laureate. After a week of intense music-making, the amateur participants will give a concert on the opening afternoon of the Festival on 19 July 2013.
There will be a private interview from an international Artist for ACMW participants about their career and long experience of playing chamber music. This interview will take place on 18 July 2013, in the evening. Following this interview, we invite everyone for drinks and nibbles hosted by The Chamber Music Network ACMP.
