Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra
The two Verbier Festival Orchestras are world leaders in orchestral training and are an essential element of the Verbier Festival’s success. From 2009, the Verbier Festival will ensure the future of these two pre-eminent ensembles of young musicians, thus creating its 6th Pôle d’excellence.
The Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra, which comprises former musicians from the symphony orchestra, devotes itself to performing works from the chamber orchestra repertoire.
Since 2006, the Chamber Orchestra has performed every year at the Verbier Festival. Most notably, it provided the accompaniment for Martha Argerich, Renaud Capuçon, Anne Sofie von Otter, Joshua Bell and Yuja Wang. The Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra gave a total of six concerts at the 2010 Verbier Festival, under the Direction of Gábor Takács-Nagy, its Music Director, and others. The Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra also performed in the Bellerive Festival, Monte Carlo, Schloss Elmau, Dortmund, Frankfurt and Zurich.
