Verbier Festival Junior Orchestra

Biography

The Verbier Festival Junior Orchestra (VFJO) is an international orchestral training programme for musicians aged 15 to 18. Students are coached by a roster of established players from around the globe, many of whom are Verbier Festival Orchestra alumni and who now perform in prominent orchestras including London Symphony Orchestra, Luzerner Sinfonieorchester, Orchestre de Paris and Frankfurter Opern-und Museumsorchester. Over three weeks, these young musicians learn, rehearse and perform in Verbier and Le Châble. The VFJO’s Music Director is James Gaffigan.
