A Swiss composer in California - our concert tour in the sunshine state will be rounded off with a portrait concert of Dominique Schafer. Our collaboration with the Chapman University-based composer from Fribourg began in 2014 with the work “Vers une présence réelle…” (Toward a real presence…). The title speaks for itself: we will be recording a portrait CD of his work for the label Kairos and at this concert, we will perform the larger works of the CD-programme.
