Orchestre de la Suisse Romande (OSR)
Since 2008, Vacheron Constantin has been one of the primary partners of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande (Orchestra of french-speaking Switzerland). As such, the manufacture supports the Swiss ensemble in its international tours and sponsors some of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande’s concerts in Geneva. Vacheron Constantin’s world resembles that of the world of the arts; because of its Geneva heritage, supporting a cultural institution like the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande is especially important to Vacheron Constantin.
Vacheron Constantin has also been a patron of the new post-graduate program created by the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande with the Haute Ecole de Musique (HEM – Geneva University of Music) ever since its creation. This program, unique in the symphonic world, grants a “Diploma of Advanced Studies” (DAS) recognized by the Haute Ecole Spécialisée de Suisse Occidentale (HES-SO – University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland) . Lasting one year, and reserved for post-graduate students, this course includes a study program and an orchestral internship in strings, brass and percussion. This partnership reflects one of Vacheron Constantin’s priorities since its creation, which is to encourage the transmission of know-how.
