This summer, soundSCAPE Festival will be moving to our new home at the Hindemith Music Centre in Blonay, Switzerland. Featuring state-of-the-art practice facilities and lodging overlooking scenic Lake Geneva, the centre will be an inspiring place for our participants to collaborate and create new music.

The property is surrounded by a 17,000 m² park with old trees, providing a view onto Lake Geneva and the Alps. The beauty and peace of these surroundings encourage concentrated work, at the same time offering restful relaxation.

Guests of the Hindemith Music Centre in Blonay appreciate the warm welcome, the stimulating ambiance and the atmosphere characterized by the spirit of music. The centre will provide an unparalleled opportunity for our participants to immerse themselves in creativity while learning from our world-renowned faculty.  We can’t wait to experience the wonderful projects and performances our participants will create in Blonay.
