Gstaad Menuhin Festival & Academy

Dear friends, teachers, students, professors, staff and members of the GSTAAD BAROQUE ACADEMY

It is with a heavy heart that I regret to inform you that we are forced to cancel all activities of the Gstaad Menuhin Festival & Academy for this summer 2020. I am dismayed and disappointed not to be able to hold the Gstaad Baroque Academy from 29 August to 5 September, as we note the Federal Council’s understandable decision with understanding and regret.

We are working on organising a master class this late summer, albeit in a modified form. We have also integrated within the GBA our esteemed young guests of the SJMW, for whom other possibilities are still open. I would at best contact some of you in the early summer, as I am trying to involve the lecturers of the junior department in some form and to hold this master class in late summer 2020.

For today I am unfortunately forced to cancel your participation in our great project. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your enthusiastic and friendly cooperation, support, work and help.

In anticipation of further encounters with you, I send you warm greetings.

Maurice Steger, Director Gstaad Baroque Academy

also on behalf of Lukas Wittermann and Christoph Müller


Please contact the local organizers regarding the return of tickets. We will try to reschedule the events as soon as possible.
