The Lavaux Classic Competition, a new event at the Festival OFF initiated by Guillaume Hersperger, was created in 2019 in collaboration with the HEMU Student Association. This unique competition aims to encourage creativity, imagination and a sense of contact with the public among students of the classical, jazz and contemporary music sections of the Haute Ecole de Musique Vaud, Valais and Fribourg, while encouraging exchanges between styles.
This year, 9 ensembles selected from among 24 projects presented their work in the semi-finals on 12 and 13 June before a jury composed of performance professionals and music lovers. The semi-final took place behind closed doors at the Salle Davel in Cully.
