Music Needs Friends. Whether past, present or future, an event such as the Gstaad Menuhin Festival & Academy requires a great deal of private support in order to endure. The contributions from the Association of Festival Friends cover nearly 10% of the annual budget and provide a guarantee for the high standard of the festival concerts. Become a member of this group of music lovers and benefit from its many advantages as well!

A donation is possible in any amount. Every contribution is very welcome.

Registration is possible at any time.
