Verbier Festival Streams Concerts Online in Video

By Matthew Westphal
24 Jul 2007

Not all the news from this year's Verbier Festival is about cancellations and substitutions. In conjunction with the classical new media company Medici Arts, the Festival has created a website dedicated to webcasting Verbier's concerts in high-definition audio and video.

At www.medici-arts.tv, at least one concert will be streamed live each day; other concerts will be recorded live and added to the site shortly afterwards. Each concert will remain available for viewing on demand anytime (except during the live streams) through the end of August, as will exclusive backstage coverage and interviews with festival artists.

(As this article is being written, Medici Arts is simulcasting live the joint Verbier appearance of violinist Hilary Hahn and folksinger Joshua Ritter.)

To see and hear the concert webcasts, which are free of charge, registration is required at www.medici-arts.tv. A high-speed Internet connection is necessary.
