VERBIER FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA

Biography

Valery Gergiev music director

James Levine conductor laureate
Charles Dutoit conductor emeritus

The Verbier Festival Orchestra (VFO) 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 orchestra 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. In preparation for work with their formidable maestro and other distinguished conductors, VFO musicians receive two weeks of intensive coaching from musicians of New York’s Metropolitan Opera.
