Founded in 1994, Verbier Festival is one of the most prominent and prestigious festivals in the classical music realm. Every July in the small resort town Verbier, young talents and great world musicians gather to perform music. Among them are world famous Valeri Gergiev, Martha Argerich, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Mikhail Pletnev, Evgeny Kissin, Yuri Bashmet, Joshua Bell, Mischa Mayski, James Levine, Thomas Quasthoff, and many others. Within 17 days, the Academy offers dozens of workshops, lectures, open rehearsals and concerts, that is why the Festival is often referred as a kind of laboratory where future world stars are discovered and nurtured.

About 40,000 people visit the festival annually. Many real music fans and professional musicians are among them, so young artists are exposed to wider international audience.
