Rush Hour’s Consular Collaboration program is a distinctive aspect of our summer offerings. Now in its eighth year, the program offers our audiences the opportunity to “dip into” the culture of countries from around the world through music and culinary offerings.
This season, we will partner with the Consulates General of Switzerland, Germany, France, Spain, Great Britain, and Austria. Each program features music and pre-concert reception treats from each native land.
This Tuesday, we are delighted to welcome Consul General Martin Bienz to our concert as we feature the Männerstimmen Basel, the award-winning men’s a cappella group from Basel, Switzerland. They are presenting a varied program of works from the last five centuries – from traditional classical men’s choir music to modern finds. Special thanks to Margreth Trümpi Martin for her wonderful logistical work in making this concert possible for all of us.
I hope you will “travel the world with us” without leaving home in the upcoming weeks!
