The Friends are a circle of enthusiastic supporters and ambassadors whose goal is the sustainable development and future viability of LUCERNE FESTIVAL. The friends are united by their love of classical music, shared musical experiences and the exchange of ideas.
Since its founding in 1966, the Friends have been an indispensable partner of LUCERNE FESTIVAL. With their annual funds they make a significant contribution to the financial security and sustainability of the festival. The Friends' central concern is not only to promote the festival of today, for example by supporting the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA. The Friends also provide a sustainable basis for the artistic work of tomorrow and therefore support important projects such as the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY and "Music for Future".
