35th Goppisberg Music Festival and Academy as part of the international Music Weeks Spiez from July 23 - August 13, 2023
In 1987, Mrs. Katharina Hardy founded the Goppisberg Music Weeks in the small romantic Valais village of Goppisberg in the Aletsch region for children and young people who are serious about making music. The founding of this event was guided by the idea of intensively promoting the instrumental skills of young talents during 3 weeks of school vacations. Since 1991, the music weeks have taken on an international character, with participants coming from Switzerland, Armenia, Bulgaria, Germany, Holland, Israel, Italy, Colombia, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Hungary and the USA.

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 Festival Director 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.
