versatile and high class

kulturbärg program 2022

The program is ready

The coming edition will be characterised by the old and the new.

Promising ensembles and great, exceptional musicians have been recruited for the summer concerts in the Blatten Chapel.
The palette of styles ranges from classical music for oboe, to tango, bandoneon, violin and guitar to a dulcimer solo programme in which sound becomes world and world becomes sound.

The Poetry Slam at the WNF Naters enjoyed great popularity and is therefore going into the second round this year. On 6 May, well-known slam poets will perform their texts on the theme of "Punkt" and compete in the battle.

At the klangland Festival, selected and outstanding formations can be heard and experienced. Well-known representatives of contemporary Swiss folk music, the singer Nina Dimitri and a flamenco guitar duo will perform. At 2 p.m. there will again be a humorous opening number with Clown Pajass and his musical companion especially for children and families.

A new event on April 1st at the WNF in Naters will be a Jazz evening with three Valais jazz bands. The musical menu consist of an aperitif with the SOS Jazz Band, a main course  with Jazz GmbH and a dessert with Les Branchouilles. The culinary offer can be enjoyed between the performances in the Jungfrau-Aletsch Restaurant.

New: Literature on the Aletschbord
The long-cherished wish to stage words and music at this place of power will come true in mid-October at the Hotel Belalp. With Anaïs Meier, we welcome the Bernese writer who inspires with her whimsical texts and receives the Kassel Prize for Comic Literature 2022 for her novel "Mit einem Fuss draussen".

The Winter concert on December 26 is dedicated to a Christmas story. Here, too, literature meets music.

We hope to arouse your curiosity with our programme and invite you to experience fascinating sounds and exciting moments.
