Wasserschloss Inzlingen, near Basel

Our first rehearsals in March 2021 were inspiring! So good to make music (testing for Corona each day) and to work creatively. Planning our first concert for September 26th of this year in Munich’s beautiful Allerheiligen Hofkirche (All Saints Court Church). The recording, with the Bavarian Radio, will take place in early 2022.
