Two days in Verbier

With the festival in full swing, we met with all of our Verbier contacts in just two days: Martin Engstrom, who founded the festival; Alain Nicod, President of the Verbier Festival Foundation; and the indefatigable Christian Thompson, our permanent point of contact. All of them expressed attachment to and confidence in our “A violin can change the world” project, and everyone is eager for the first classes to begin in Martigny.

Our next task will be a launch party in Valais to raise awareness of the project. With support from Pauline Daragon, the multimedia specialist on the Festival’s permanent staff, we have begun arranging this event.
