High up in the Swiss alps, some of the finest international artists meet to give masterclasses and perform concerts.
Verbier is a special place, celebrated by skiers and snow lovers as a must-visit. In the summer months, the Swiss alpine town’s focus shifts to classical music with events staged in a purpose-built concert venue, churches, hotel foyers and even people’s homes.
International artists join training musicians for months of teaching, rehearsals and performances.
Some events are streamed live and available on-demand via Medici.tv.
