Since 2007, we have organised a music festival in the Kulturkapelle Arni near Biglen that mainly centres around the activity of young Swiss based artists.
The festival has seen the following artists amongst others: Gémeaux Quartett, Ernesto Molinari, Benjamin Engeli, Trio Rafale, Quatuor Byron, Nehad El Sayed Ghazy, Chantemoiselle, siJamais or musique en route.
The Kapellenkonzerte enriches the cultural life in Biglen and provides the region with a small but fine chamber music festival that radiates around the region due to its high calibre performances. Notably, the good acoustics of the chapel offers an ideal setting for a music festival. With a variagated programme we cater for a wide audience. Our costs are covered by sponsorship and retiring collections.
We are always very glad to find musicians that agree to play concerts without a fixed salary as they perform for the retiring collection. Thanks to their willingness, the festival gains a certain charme for it gives us the pleasurable opportunity to focus solely on the performance of chamber music .
The music making becomes an intimate gesture where the audience bears witness to the becoming of both well and lesser-known works in a cosy and intimate ambience.
Let yourself be enchanted by our chamber music concerts 2017 and the idylic setting of our festival. Take a look at our website www.kulturkapelle.ch where you can keep up to date with any news relating to the festival.
