Become an Academician

The Zermatt Festival Academy takes place from 5.9. to 20.9.2020 and is aimed at young music students with an exceptional level of playing and a strong passion for both orchestral and chamber music. The Zermatt Music Festival welcomes the academy to an isolated mountain village, the ideal place to organize rehearsals and concerts that follow one another at a very intense pace and require great concentration. The two weeks of rehearsals, common meals and hikes are unifying. They promote a friendly and family atmosphere between academics, professors and soloists. An affinity that the audience feels in the concerts of a very high musical level offered as part of the festival.
