Following his Swiss premiere in November 2012 which was completley sold out, tenor John Thade is now back in Zurich for two concerts. The first takes place on the 9th February and the second on 9th March 2013 at the Jecklin Forum in Rämistrasse 30, 8001 Zurich. Both concerts start at 4pm , with the doors opening at 3.30pm. The musical repertoire of this American born singer who grew up in St.Gallen but now lives in Zurich, ranges from Viennese operettas to classic Broadway songs and he projects a great on stage presence as he intermixes his music with entertaining anecdotes. For more information please go to the John Thade website or the Jecklin website.
If this isn’t your cup of tea and you’re looking for something quirky and different why not pop along to the Migros Museum in Zurich and check out a “VideoInstallation” exhibition by the Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson called “The Visitors”?
Set in a mansion in upstate Manhattan it depicts the artist, his friends, and residents performing a “feminine nihilistic gospel song” with various musical instruments being played in different rooms. “The Visitors” is an act of homage to friendship—and also, to the Swedish pop band ABBA. If you’re interested you need to be quick as it finishes on Sunday 27th January. For more information go to the website.
It’s Zurich Film Festival week (see post below for more info) so if you’re not watching one of the big screens why not shoot your own movie and perhaps even win a prize?
Until 22nd September you can take your Ausweis along as a deposit to the «Zürich rollt» station at Pestalozziwiese and borrow a bike and helmet camera for 30mins to make your own movie of Zurich. By the evening you will be able to watch your own video of the city on Facebook. There will be a competition on Facebook and who knows if yours is voted best film you will be the competition winner! Good luck!
