2020 marks the beginning of a new chapter for guerillaclassics with a concert tour through South Africa and Switzerland.

The series features new music by the composers and musicians Neo Muyanga (born in Soweto) and Nik Bärtsch (born in Zurich), which will be performed by the Cosmic Percussion Ensemble (Zurich) alongside viola player Sarah Evans and singers Nomapostile Nyiki and Lungiswa Plaatjies (from Cape Town).

It is our aim to demonstrate what extraordinary and unique concert experiences can be created through the fusion of vastly different musical traditions, instruments, and cultural backgrounds. The series will be held in range of venues in Zurich, Amriswil, Weinfelden, Scuol, Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Johannesburg, and Soweto, including traditional concert halls, theaters, and jazz clubs as well as less common sites, such as Park Station in Johannesburg, Africa’s largest train station.

guerillaclassics invites you to become part of their growing community and to get to know new forms of classical music in the twenty-first century.

 

The world premiere takes place on March 6, 2020, 7 pm at Museum Rietberg in Zurich, Switzerland.

UPDATE: The premiere at Museum Rietberg is already sold out. There will be an additional concert. More information following soon.

 

A collaboration between guerillaclassics and Cosmic Percussion Ensemble.
