WildKat PR is delighted to welcome the Menuhin Festival, Gstaad to its client roster.
Founded in 1957 by Yehudi Menuhin, the resident festival of the Swiss village of Gstaad boasts 50 concerts in beautiful locations including churches, mountain stations, glaciers, airfield hangars and the famous festival tent. The festival has grown substantially over its 58-year history, now excelling in both Chamber Music performances from outstanding artists such as Joshua Bell and Sabine Meyer, and symphonic brilliance from its home orchestra the Gstaad Festival Orchestra.
As well as these outstanding artists, an important part of the Menuhin Festival is a celebration of amateur musicianship and musical education. From 2008, the festival has expanded its programme of amateur orchestras and masterclasses, giving musicians the opportunity to perform within the framework of a pre-eminent international festival. The Gstaad Academy for young professionals offers customised tuition for promising professional musicians, whereas Play @ Festival Gstaad offers unique tuition and performance opportunities to keen amateurs of all ages. This year marks the launch of the Gstaad Conducting Academy, an unparalleled opportunity in the whole of Europe, offering rising young conductors the chance to work with a professional orchestra.
WildKat PR will be working with the festival to promote a series of concerts and across Europe preceding the festival’s opening. With innovative digital ventures to interact with audience and new media, extensive masterclasses and a plethora of internationally renowned soloists, chamber musicians and conductors, 2014 promises to be another outstanding year in the Menuhin festival’s history.
