WJMF – World Youth Music Festival
July 6–10, 2017
The musical competition is open for youth bands from around the world and allows an international comparison of educational standards. The aim is also to facilitate contacts between young people from different countries, continents and cultures. The organizing committee has set itself an ambitious goal: They wish to bring a total of 80 youth orchestras from around the world to Zurich, what amounts to about 4‘000 musicians. The World Youth Music Festival should not only be an interesting competition for the participating youth but also enthral the audience with public concerts.
