Though it may be hard to remember the feeling of plush red velvet seats or the mingled hum of chatter and tuning instruments, we have some good news. The Lausanne Chamber Orchestra has signaled that the end of our cultural desert is in sight by releasing their 2021-2022 season program this morning.
This season the OCL welcomes new artistic director – Renaud Capuçon – to the helm. Beyond an impressive CV, he brings confidence, energy, and ambition to the role. Precisely what is needed in this moment of relaunch.
A remarkable lineup of guest artists from across Europe as well as the Americas, Middle East, and China promise musical discovery through the season but also signal the ambition of the OCL to network itself with the world’s most excellent musicians. The season includes a tour around and beyond Switzerland as well, and an initiative to take their concerts to places where people would otherwise be unable to access them – a prison and centers for the handicapped.
Though tickets go on sale from July 1, you can view the program online from today.
Alas, what a year it has been. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and we’ve never been so excited to book tickets for a concert.
