TOURNÉE DES REFUGES

Do you like hiking and listening to live music? Come and join this group of young musi­cians/mountaineers and Richard Lehner, mountain guide and warden of the Monte Rosa Hut, for a unique and unforgettable mountain experience.

Back in 2013, the Tournée des Refuges was created with the aim to organise an annual concert tour on foot in the mountains. This year, the four young musicians will finish their eighth expedition in Zermatt. Carrying their instruments on their backs, the double bass included (!), the artists will climb from Rotenboden to the Monte Rosa Hut, crossing the Gorner glacier. In the evening, at the hut, after having settled down and eaten under the soft light of the setting sun, they will perform their music which crosses genres by draw­ing from the depth of traditional music, the freedom of jazz, the richness of classical and the power of popular music.
