35th Goppisberg Music Festival and Academy for Strings, Piano and Voice.
In 1987, Mrs. Katharina Hardy founded the Goppisberg Music Weeks in the small romantic village of Goppisberg in the Aletsch region of Valais for children and young people who were serious about making music. Katharina Hardy was guided by the idea to intensively promote the instrumental skills of young talents during 3 weeks of school vacations. In the first years the music weeks were held in the village of Goppisberg itself, but with a larger number of participants the framework proved to be too narrow.

So the location of the Goppisberg Music Weeks was moved to other places in the Upper Valais. The old name, however, remained, referring to the early days. Since 1991, the Music Weeks have taken on an international character, with participants coming from Switzerland, Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Germany, Israel, Italy, Colombia, Poland, Spain, Hungary, Ukraine and the USA, and with music students from these countries also taking part in the course Since 2007, Deborah Spiegel, violin, is the new Artistic Director and Concertmaster, and Ronny Spiegel, violin, is the conductor of the Academy Orchestra. They are supported by their parents Piroska Spiegel Nyffenegger Head of Festival / Organization and Bruno Nyffenegger Spiegel Technical Director. In 2019 the name Goppisberg Music Weeks has been changed to Goppisberg Music Festival and Academy.

This year it will be held for the sixth time at the Hotel Seaside in Spiez from July 23 - August 13. 2023
