Host an Academy musician in your home
Every year, the Verbier Festival searches for individuals and families to host Academy musicians in their homes (age 16 to 35) during their stay in Verbier. Hosts enhance the welcome extended to those taking part in the Academy and their support makes it possible for the musicians to escape from the reality of every day and to concentrate on all that the Academy has to offer. Hosts become Supporter Friends of the Verbier Festival, and enjoy an insider’s view of the Festival experience. They also form friendships that last a lifetime.
How does it work?
- Hosts provide their musician with a single room. Academy musicians have very full schedules and are away from their host homes for most of the day. They often return home late after evening Festival concerts.
- Hosts offer their musician breakfast every morning
- Hosts become Supporter Friends of the Verbier Festival, enjoying all applicable membership benefits, including advance access to tickets.
- Hosts are covered by the Festival’s insurance policy in the unlikely event of damage to a property.
The Festival also searches for apartments and chalets to house guest artists and Festival team members. Again, all hosts are eligible for membership in the Friends (Associate or Supporter level).
