Gospelchor Thalwil: ‘Rock My Soul’

One of the greatest happenings in our church in Thalwil is the yearly performance of our local Gospelchoir. The choir consists of 30 singers, accompanied by a band consisting of Felix Bachmann (leader, dobro and banjo), Heidi Bachmann (bass), Andrea Vontobel (flute) and Hanspeter «Bibi» Honegger (drums), as well as choir member Sibylle Häfliger (violin).

On February 2, 2020, they performed their latest program ‘Rock my soul’. A mix of gospel classics and more modern songs (‘Sailing’!), choir songs and duets. This year’s performance was even more special, since, Felix Bachmann, the leader of the choir, announced his retirement. The choir thanked him by performing the Abba classic ‘Thank you for the music’.

Fortunately his successor is already know, so I am looking forward to another great performance next year!

Another Great Performance of the KOTH!

Sunday March 12, 2017, I had the privilege to attend another concert of our very own Kammerorchester Thalwil (Thalwil Chamber Orchestra). It was a wonderful concert, during which the orchestra, conducted by Maya Wenger (a source of energy and inspiration), played the following pieces:

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Les petits riens KV 299b
  • Sergej Rachmaninov – Vocalise op. 34 No. 14
  • Joseph Haydn – Concert for French Horn and strings Hob VII:3 and Hob VII:4
  • Bela Bartok – Romanian Folk Dances
  • Felix Mendelsohn – For He shall give His angels

Matthias Kofmehl, the soloist of the evening, wonderfully played the French Horn during the concert of Joseph Haydn.
