The Music That Came in from the Cold

Musique en fête: this is a well-known event that joyfully illuminates the summer in Sion. For one day, the capital of the Valais will be living to the rhythm of other places, offering a stimulating and poetic musical itinerary through the old town. From the dawn Angelus to the evening Angelus, the concerts will follow one another, in places that are sometimes familiar, often unknown. The notes will fly away, light, and their wake will trace a bushy path, underlining the rich architectural heritage of the city.

This year, Nordic traditions will be invited to the medieval city. Whether from Scandinavia, Iceland or the Baltic States, “Music That Came in from the Cold” will refresh you, make you dream, laugh or dance.

Conceived in partnership with the Conservatoire Cantonal and Schubertiade Sion, the concerts of this beautiful day will all be free. Come in great numbers!
