An actual example of such a cooperation and membership has been DAVOS FESTIVAL – young artists in concert.
At the initiative of Reto Bieri, the formerArtistic Director of DAVOS FESTIVAL young artists in concert (and Coach at various Animato Academies; see under Music Professionals) Animato Foundation has signed in 2014a cooperation agreement with DAVOS FESTIVAL young artists in concert in respect to the newly created “DAVOS FESTIVAL Camerata”. The prime objective of this joint venture is to provide to the best orchestra playersfrom the string sectionof Animato FoundationOrchestra an opportunity to come to Davos and form the core of the “DAVOS FESTIVAL Camerata”. Animato Foundation has welcomed this first cooperation allowing to offer past orchestra members a further opportunity to perfect their playing skills and to interact with pears, festival guests and music professionals present in Davos at the “DAVOS FESTIVAL young artists in concert”situated in the inspiring Swiss Alpine environment. (see further information on www.davosfestival.ch)
In 2018 the “Davos Festival Camerata” composed apart from the lead instrument players by Ex-Animato Orchestra members only has been terminated in favor of a “Davos Festival Academy” open to any young musician meeting the qualification requirements. The respected exclusive cooperation has therefore been terminated under the new directorship of the Davos Festival.
