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.

The Academy’s Conducting Programme offers a stepping stone to emerging conductors who are on the verge of leading orchestras at the highest level. It was launched in 2018 with the arrival of Valery Gergiev as VFO Music Director. Four candidates are accepted to the programme.
