It is spring (although last Saturday’s surprise snowfall had us all wondering), and time for the Lucerne Spring Festival. From 31 March to 2 April, the KKL (Lucerne Concert and Congress Centre) will be echoing with the sounds of international and local classical music.
The festival was founded in 1938 as a summer festival and is now flanked by the spring and autumn versions and this year a fourth festival will be added in May: Piano Festival.
The Spring Festival will include an array of musical talents with a focus on Mendelssohn, Schubert and Chopin with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra performing some of their most famous works on Friday evening at the KKL.
The Lucerne Spring Festival has been supporting sustainability for over 20 years and will continue with its support of young musicians, music education, contemporary music, diversity and social engagement. In collaboration with the myclimate Foundation the festival will take numerous measures for a long-term, sustainable climate protection strategy.
