Abu Dhabi, 25 September 2019– Swiss Art Gate UAE has the pleasure to announce a special concert of the ‘Swiss Series’ with the Jazz Band, Fischermanns Orchestra from Lucerne, Switzerland. The ‘Swiss Series’, an initiative by Swiss Art Gate UAE, started in 2012 with the aim to promote visual artists, musicians and performing artists from Switzerland in the UAE.
The ‘Sand Dust Tour 2019’ will bring 11 members of the jazz band, Fischermanns Orchestra, to the UAE to perform a special concert on Friday, 18 October 2019 at The Fridge, Alserkal Avenue Dubai.
The concerts are under the patronage of the Embassy of Switzerland to the UAE and Bahrain and will be supported by UAE-based Swiss companies and Swiss foundations.
The Fischermanns Orchestra draws upon many different cultural influences and inspirations to form its own distinctive sound, which is in constant flux, changing as the musical evolution takes its course. A conscious risk is taken to sail through deep waters without compromise. Massimo Baggi, the Ambassador of Switzerland to the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain: “The Fischermanns Orchestra from the beautiful city of Lucerne will surprise you with its powerful performance and dynamic sound. Experience live Jazz as it should be: vibrant, rich and extremely engaging.”
The aim of the concerts with the Fischermanns Orchestra is to promote Switzerland as a creative and innovative country, and to create more awareness for Jazz as a unique form of artistic expression.
