Verbier Festival
MIAGI Youth Orchestra

South Africa’s 90-member MIAGI Youth Orchestra, from the educational non-profit organisation MIAGI (Music is A Great Investment), is made up of young musicians of different backgrounds with one thing in common – talent. Each musician is able and willing to play different genres: classical, folk and Soweto and Cape Town Jazz. It is not unusual for their concerts to begin with a classical masterwork and evolve into a jazzy jam session with musicians dancing and jumping all over the stage. Its fourth-ever European tour this summer commemorates Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday. Maxim Vengerov is MIAGI’s Patron.
