The Verbier Festival Junior Orchestra: the most extraordinary musical experience of your life!
Are you a talented young musician aged 15 to 18 years looking for a life-changing musical experience? The Verbier Festival Junior Orchestra may be just for you!
Launched in 2013 under the name Music Camp, the Verbier Festival Junior Orchestra (VFJO) has evolved to become the third youth orchestra of the Verbier Festival. Launched originally by British star-conductor Daniel Harding, the VFJO is an international orchestral training programme for 15 to 18 year olds set in the heart of the Swiss Alps and aimed at providing one of the most intense musical experiences available to young musicians today.
This summer, the programme will take place from 16 July to 6 August 2017!
As a member of this ensemble, you will rehearse and perform alongside talented young instrumentalists from all over the world and plunge into the fascinating Verbier Festival experience. Known worldwide for the quality of its music education initiatives, the VFJO brings together inspiring musician-pedagogues to deliver high-quality teaching, which is both fun and challenging. Besides orchestral training, you will also have the opportunity to attend concerts and explore the many leisure and sporting activities on offer in this stunning alpine setting!
The Verbier Festival Junior Orchestra, alongside the prestigious Verbier Festival Academy (created in 1994), the Verbier Festival Orchestra (created in 2000), and the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra (created in 2004), has set standards of excellence, creativity and innovation in music education worldwide. With this new talent development programme, the Verbier Festival reaffirms its commitment to the next generation, offering even younger musicians a first-rate “stepping-stone” towards a successful music career.
