tonhalleLATE – Classical and Contemporary Music in Zurich

Do you like both Classical and contemporary music? If so, tonhalleLATE is something you might be interested in! It’s a musical evening which links “serious”, Classical music with popular and contemporary music. It all take place on the same evening, in the same location. It was the brainchild of the previous principal conductor, David Zinman, who stepped down in July 2014 after 19 years in the driving seat. The idea was to attract a younger audience to the Tonhalle Orchestra and it has been very successful.

The next tonhalleLATE event is on the 28th November 2014. It’s at the Tonhalle in Zurich which is conveniently located in the heart of the city next to the Kongresshaus in Claridenstrasse.

The world-famous Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich is now led by Lionel Bringuier, who conducts the classical pieces for the event. In the foyer the DJs hold sway, turning the area into a disco with a dance floor, bar and lounge. A fun event which is hugely popular!

If you can’t make 28th November 2014, the next tonhalleLATE events will be on Friday 30th January 2015 and Friday 27th March 2015.
