Festival Fever

Dear all,

This week, I've got a lineup of exciting festivals, a memorable performance, and a must-read blog post for you. Enjoy!

Worth Going To

Summer is around the corner and with it comes an array of fantastic festivals. I'm very grateful to be invited back to cover the Rencontres Musicales d'Evian at the cosy La Grange au Lac above Lake Geneva this year and can't wait to see two of my favorite singers, Siobhan Stagg and Benjamin Appl, perform Fauré's Requiem together with the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne and Renaud Capuçon on July 1st.Another festival which I'm sadly going to miss next week but would like to recommend all the more is polliphonic, just outside Munich, which offers a great variety of concerts on June 7 and 8!

Worth Watching

Jamie Cullum closing his 2018 Montreux Jazz Festival in style with Mixtape. Note to self: see Jamie Cullum in concert again and go to the Montreux Festival soon, too! Both together would work on July 13. Anyone want to join?
