Davos Festival

About us

Every year the DAVOS FESTIVAL Academy invites 20 young musicians to take an active part in the DAVOS FESTIVAL – young artists in concert to further their professional, individual advanced training. Selected participants spend two weeks with daily rehearsals, workshops and visits to concerts, perfecting their art under the guidance of tutors and the Festival’s advanced Young Artists. In addition to playing in an orchestra, members of the Academy are given the opportunity to perform as part of a chamber music group at an Open Stage. Additional education opportunities for Academy participants are also part of the programme.

Core of the Foundation is DAVOS FESTIVAL – young artists in concert, which has taken place during the summer since 1986. Young talented musicians come to Davos for the length of two weeks and rehearse in various chamber music ensembles. They perform mainly works of classical and contemporary music, especially chamber music. Concerts, Open Stages, Open Singing and various programme for young audience create a unique Festival and cause a world of discovery for all participants. Since 2011, DAVOS FESTIVAL organises a New Year’s Concert and, since 2016, a winterly Singing Week.
