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!

Tribute to Martin Luther King in Thalwil (CH)

Today it is Martin Luther King Day. Yesterday evening I had the pleasure to attend ‘I have a dream – Hommage an Martin Luther King’ in the Kirchgemeindehaus Thalwil. A beautiful performance by Vera Bauer (Text & Design), Christina Jaccard (Vocals), Dave Ruosch (Piano) and Steve Grant (Drums). The performers really managed to bring Martin Luther King, his family and the era of the civil rights movements, to life.

Thank you Evangelisch Reformierte Kirche Thalwil and Jazzclub Thalwil for this wonderful co-production!
