Verbier Festival Orchestra

The Verbier Festival Orchestra is a rite of passage for today’s exceptional young orchestra musicians aged 18 to 28. It is recognized as one of the best training orchestras on the planet. Since its founding in 2000, the VFO has brought together rising talents with the foremost conductors and soloists of our time. Nowhere else in the world does the Orchestra’s Music Director Valery Gergiev spend more time in one place each summer than in Verbier. The VFO is absolutely unique in offering such privileged access to Maestro Gergiev over almost a week each summer. In preparation for work with their formidable maestro and other distinguished conductors, VFO musicians receive two weeks of intensive coaching from 14 musicians of New York’s Metropolitan Opera. This year marks 20 years of collaboration with the MET Orchestra. The VFO performs five symphonic concerts and one opera during the Festival.
