The Verbier Festival Orchestra (VFO) is recognised as one of the world’s best training orchestras. Since its founding in 2000, the orchestra has united the most accomplished young orchestral musicians from across the globe with the foremost conductors and soloists of our time, among them Maestro Valery Gergiev, its Music Director.

The 2019 VFO summer programme continues the orchestra’s tradition of artistic excellence with concerts conducted by Valery Gergiev, Franz Welser-Möst, Manfred Honeck, Lahav Shani and Fabio Luisi. Programmes will include monumental symphonic works including Bruckner’s Ninth, Mahler’s Second and Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphonies, Stravinsky’s Petrushka, and Richard Strauss’s opera Die Frau ohne Schatten.
