The mountains resound
ANDERMATT MUSIC is the concert organiser of the Gotthard region, bringing music to the highest-lying concert venue in Switzerland, the Andermatt Concert Hall. Situated right at the centre of Europe’s north-south axis, Andermatt’s geographical position makes it well-nigh predestined to bring together different cultures, people and classical music. As the only true concert hall in the Alps, the Andermatt Concert Hall offers an all-year concert season on the Gotthard and also provides architecturally optimum conditions for a unique concert experience. ANDERMATT MUSIC is the main music event organiser in the region, and in line with the sustainable development of Andermatt, it has established the Concert Hall as an alpine beacon for classical music.
The Swiss conductor and musicologist Lena-Lisa Wüstendörfer is taking on the direction of ANDERMATT MUSIC, which offers some 20 concerts per year. At the same time, ANDERMATT MUSIC will for the first-ever time acquire its own orchestra in residence: the Swiss Orchestra, directed by Wüstendörfer.
