The «Lucerne Festival Contemporary Leaders» are selected musicians from the worldwide Lucerne Festival Academy network. During the summer festival, they accompany the three-week work phase as coaches, from the section rehearsals of the Lucerne Festival Contemporary Orchestra (LFCO) to rehearsals of programs for small ensembles, passing their knowledge and experience to the younger generation.
