St. Moritz Salon Orchestra

The tradition of holding daily spa concerts in St. Moritz dates back to the 18th century; in those days, the musicians were principally engaged from the La Scala in Milan. During the pre-war years, the spa orchestras were of almost symphonic proportions, but subsequently were reduced to a single ensemble in St. Moritz Bad.

Nowadays, concerts are performed from July to September every day from 10.30am until 11.30am – in fine weather, in the music pavilion of the Kurpark in St. Moritz Bad and when the weather is bad, in the concert hall at St. Moritz Bäder AG.

This tradition has now been revived in Pontresina and Sils. The ensembles represent a little island of salon music, which has now firmly established itself in cultural life in the Engadin, and indeed Switzerland.
