As of October, I will introduce four concerts in 2019/2020 that seek to build a bridge between classical music and other genres and styles of music.

Alternative Space Concerts in 2019

The happenings will keep on sounding in 2019 following the three days of whirlwind performances that were Gwendolyn's ingenious "Window Display Concerts" in Berne's Loeb Department Store. In March she plays with her trusted piano partner, Simon Bucher, in Caffè Bar Sattler, and in April, they will take over Adrianos Bar & Café, arguably the choice spot for coffee in Berne.

17 Concerts in 15 days

In the first two weeks of 2019, Gwendolyn performed seventeen concerts, including two live performances on Dutch National Radio and one live performance on Dutch National Television. Moreover, the violinist, together with her piano partner, Simon Bucher, gave nine concerts in three days during their Window Display performances in Switzerland's capital city. The series was one of many ways in which Gwendolyn brings classical music to wider audiences in order to give the genre a greater spotlight in everyday life.
