Greetings from the artistic director Christian Zehnder:
The Sound Festival revives, together with the first International Natural Sound and Overtone Symposium. Customised in terms of content for Toggenburg, the sound festival and symposium serve different aspects and currents of natural tone music and ethnic cultures.
Sound Festival Toggenburg will be shorter, with a great variety of artists, thematically oriented festival days and even more festival atmosphere. In future there will be a large circus tent with a wonderful ambience and an additional stage in addition to the classical concert hall of the Propstei. Selected music gems will delight young and old here in the form of free concerts, and an attractive culinary offer will make the Klangfestival Toggenburg a real festival.
Exciting regional and international projects, courses, lectures and concerts will make it possible to hear and experience the forgotten and unheard from the world of natural sound. Local creativity will again be given a prominent place and musical encounters with cultures of the world will be promoted. Finland and Norway are the focal points this time, but our neighbours from Austria will also make a day an unforgettable experience.
The festival is integrated into the first Natural Tone & Overtone Symposium, which will take place from 3-6 June 2022 at the same venue.
