Here’s something city connoisseurs of western classical music can look forward to. Winterthurer Symphoniker, along with Cecilian Choir and the Bangalore School of Music Chamber Orchestra, will be performing on October 11 at Chowdiah Memorial Hall at 7:30 pm.

The concert has been organised by Indian Council for Cultural Relations, Swiss Consulate General, The Bangalore School of Music and Mövenpick Hotel and Spa. Winterthurer Symphoniker (WiSy) is a philharmonic orchestra based in Winterthur, Switzerland. The ensemble is dedicated to promoting and performing orchestral works and chamber music at a high artistic level. The orchestra cultivates a broad repertoire ranging from the early classical era to contemporary times.

“The goal of this cultural exchange project is to ensure knowledge sharing of western classical music by bringing together musicians from East and West for a week to rehearse and to perform a classical concert,” said Daniel Bircher, co-organiser.
