Swiss Ice Fiddlers
The Swiss Ice Fiddlers evoke emotions about the uniqueness of the fascinating ice world of the high mountains in a unique way. Violin sounds, landscape photography, exciting fairy tales animated with pictures and popular scientific glaciological explanations combined with culinary delights create unexpectedly enchanting effects that make the topic of climate protection a matter of the heart. Evening programs, stagings, children's excursions and framings for occasions of all kinds are individually arranged. Musical performances include entertaining folk music from Northern Europe (Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Ireland), Switzerland and kletzmer music.
The Duo TangoGlaciar consists of the two glaciologists Johannes Oerlemans and Felix Keller. Well-known tangos for orchestra were arranged by Johannes Oerlemans for this intimate instrumentation. Performances at home in Switzerland and abroad (Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy, Sweden) in milongas and scientific meetings give a special charm to the perhaps only tango ensemble of glaciologists in the world.
