Zermatt Festival Academy 

They come from all over the world and are the great hope of the classical scene: every year in Zermatt, young talented musicians come together to spend two weeks making music at the highest level.


Right from its first edition in 2005, the formula chosen by the Zermatt Festival Academy has proved a success. About thirty young musicians from all over the world are invited each year to attend a two-weeks intensive music course, such as the ones formerly directed by Pablo Casals at the foot of the Matterhorn. These highly qualified students benefit from the support of the Berlin Scharoun Ensemble with whom they form the Zermatt Festival Orchestra.


This support from members of the Berlin Philharmonic is most precious, and the idea of giving these musicians the opportunity to take part in the Academy two summers in a row aims at securing the benefits of such work in the long term.


You can attend rehearsals during the Festival!
