klangantrisch 2016


Already for the second time takes place the festival klangantrisch in Riggisberg. At this multi-day cultural event are represented different musical styles of light and serious classical music, jazz, folk, swing, rock and pop.

The songwriter Tinu Heiniger, the Irish singer-songwriter Shirley Grimes and the Swiss bassist Wolfgang Zwiauer together with the Symphony Orchestra Biel Solothurn (SOBS) and violinist Michaela Paetsch
under the direction of Kaspar
are going to present themselves in a crossover concert at the opening evening on Thursday, 2 June 2016.

The second highlight of the festival klangantrisch on Friday, 3 June 2016 represents the Czech singer and showman Ondřej Havelka and his band Melody Makers. An evening with Havelka and his Melody Makers is more than just a concert. It is a sophisticated show, which pursues to the smallest detail to reflect the time of swing with the costumes, hairstyles and dance routines.

Also this year the Saturday, 4 June 2016 is going to be a family day with the market and concerts following by a musical stroll through the village to the Abegg Foundation.

On Sunday, 5 June 2016, the Ensemble klangantrisch is giving the final concert with chamber music in the church in Riggisberg.
