The Orchestre de la Suisse Romande is delighted to be returning to the lawn of Genève-Plage on 15 and 18 August 2024 for its traditional Festival. Unlike what was announced for this 5th edition, Thursday evening will be given over to cinema, and Sunday will feature two concerts: classical in the morning and jazz in the evening.

To enable the public to take advantage of the new festival proposed by the City of Geneva, "Genève Genève", and its lake show to be held on 16 and 17 August 2024 in front of the Plage des Eaux-Vives, the OSR is adapting the dates of its Festival, initially scheduled for 15 to 17 August, and is proposing a new formula.

  • Cinema - The festivities kick off on Thursday 15 August at 9.15pm with the legendary musical comedy Singin’ in the Rain,performed as a film-concert under the direction of the conductor Ernst van TielAdored by audiences the world over since its release in 1952, Singin' in the Rain has long since achieved cult status thanks to its glamour and fabulous music, danceable, jazzy, brassy and melodic, sublimating all the strengths of the big orchestra.

    The festival continues on Sunday 18 August:

  • Classical - « Sérénade d’été » at 9.15am with the artist in residence, saxophonist Valentine Michaud, under the direction of Italian conductor Giuseppe Mengoli an eclectic programme, from Debussy's Rhapsodie to Milhaud's Scaramouche, ending with the melancholy tones of Mozart's 40th.
    Concert offered to Genève-Plage customers.

  • Jazz - Then, at 9.30pm, Frank Sinatra's greatest hits will bring this 5th edition to a fitting close, performed by multi-award-winning singer Matt Dusk. This rhythmic tribute to the famous 50s crooner promises a spectacular night of music and entertainment.
