… under the baton of a world-class conductor
In 2011, internationally renowned conductor Antoine Marguier decided to take on a new challenge. He wanted to draw upon his vast experience to make Geneva home to the best amateur orchestra in the world. Thanks to his diligence and expertise as a music educator, he has put together an ensemble that is esteemed as much for its musicianship as its extraordinary spirit, attracting the world’s most sought-after soloists, like Maxim Vengerov, Khatia Buniatishvili, Gautier Capuçon, Miloš Karadaglić, Renée Fleming and Pretty Yende.
