Concerts, Upcoming & Past…


Below you find a list of concerts that I consider attending (or have attended); this is merely for information. The occurrence of an event does not imply endorsement or promotion (nor do I promise reviewing each and every one of these concerts). All concerts are in Switzerland, unless noted otherwise.
Note that at this time of the pandemic, I have stopped mid- and long-term planning for upcoming events.
My concert reviews typically appear a within a week after the event; if you want to be notified about newly published reviews, please subscribe to the blog, in the sidebar.
