‘Break A Leg’ – Swingmusic at the Rondell Bürkliplatz Zurich

Thursday evening June 22 I attended a wonderful concert of ‘Break a Leg!’. A group of musicians consisting of Ursula Ledergerber, vocals, Urs Keller, guitar and vocals,  Heinz Krapf, bass and Stefan Rüfenacht on saxes, melodica and cornet.

The concert took place at the Rondell the Bürkliplatz in Zurich. The band played a number of classic  jazz-swing songs, including one of my favorites: Lullaby of Birdland.

The audience could not sit still, but immediately enthusiastically started to dance, and kept doing so as long as the musicians kept on playing.

I had a wonderful great evening and am looking forward to seeing them again soon!

Photoshoot Leonardo Muzii

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to do a photo shoot with Leonardo Muzii. A professional conductor based in Basel, Switzerland. We had a pleasant late afternoon and took a number of great pictures on the roof terrace of Leonardo’s house.

Road Trip with two BMW 325i E30 convertibles to Schwyz

As proud owners of a 28+ year old BMW BMW 325i E30,we decided to take a short trip with another couple, who were in possession of the same type of car. At the end of May 2017 we drove from Zurich along the Aegerisee to Schwyz. From there we drove back by the Sihlsee, Egg and Freienbach.
