The association Schlosskonzerte Thun organises annually in June ten concerts ranging from classical music to jazz. The central venue and eponym of the celebrated music festival is the historical Knight’s Hall in the castle of Thun, which offers a unique setting for the concerts. Further concert locations can be found throughout the entire city of Thun.
The principal mission of the Schlosskonzerte Thun is the presentation of classical chamber music performed by top artists. In addition, a jazz evening, world music including Swiss folkmusic and a family concert are part of the yearly program. The festival concept gives importance to surprise, exclusivity and cross-over.
On the one hand the Schlosskonzerte Thun is a platform for national and international stars, on the other hand it strives to promote young musicians and local artists.
