New Season’s Preview: Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich 2021/2022
The Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich has just announced its new season’s programme. The orchestra moves back into its splendidly renovated old hall, the Tonhalle, down by the lake. It has taken four years to re-paint, re-gild, put in a new floor, seats, air-cooling and humidity system, create a terrace with a view of the lake and the Alps and modernise backstage. A new organ has been installed, and I can testify it sounds magnificent. Everyone looks forward to the opening of the new season, in the ‘new old hall’. ‘See you am See’ (See you by the lake) is the orchestra’s current slogan – typically, partly in English, partly in German.
