I would love for you to come hear this special concert. We are presenting music that you will not hear anywhere else, like Tamusuza, a living Ugandandian composer.
The setting is modern and we have photography to go along with the countries that the composer is from. Come check us out.
Celebrating Annemarie Schwarzenbach
Sunday, April 10 at 6 PM
In celebration of the new exhibition Annemarie Schwarzenbach: Departure without Destination, the Bechtler Ensemble performs music of composers from places Annemarie Schwarzenbach lived and traveled to in her lifetime. Photographs highlighting a variety of subjects from Schwarzenbach's travels to Switzerland, Africa, and Austria are paired with Swiss composer Paul Juon, African composer Justinian Tamusuza, and Austrian composer Hugo Wolf. We invite you to imagine an around-the-world journey that Annemarie captured so beautifully.
