The Festival’s music isn’t played only in Lucerne! Every year, various ensembles and projects serve as LUCERNE FESTIVAL’s ambassador, giving concerts all over the world.

For example, the musicians of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA regularly set off on a major concert tour following their performances at the Summer Festival – foreign residencies have thus far them them through Europe and to New York, Moscow, Tokyo and Beijing. And the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY is also regularly invited to make guest appearances.

Last but not least: the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ALUMNI regular organize concerts all around the globe: for example they performed in a mini-festival honoring György Ligeti at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
