2. New Orleans Jazz Festival in Tel Aviv with Silvan Zingg

After a major success at the first New Orleans Jazz Festival 2018 in Tel Aviv (Israel), Silvan had the great pleasure to be guest musician also at the second edition of this amazing festival. Some of the best jazz musicians from all over the world came here to celebrate 3 days of music.

Charity concert in the USA

On the 21st May 2019, Silvan Zingg set out on a special trip to the United States. Via Chicago he travelled Oklahoma, where he gave a charity concert at the Blackwell High School in Blackwell, OK.

Arrived in Blackwell, he found very bad conditions: The city along the Chikaskia River was struggling with a massive flood which reached historical levels. Streets were flooded and people had to be rescued from their homes. “It was terrible and shocking to see that. My thoughts are with the people who have to deal with this catastrophe and its impacts”, says Silvan Zingg.

Next International Boogie Woogie Festival in 2020

The next edition of Silvan Zingg’s International Boogie Woogie Festival will take place in 2020.

In 16 editions since 2002, Silvan Zingg had the pleasure to present every year a spectacular Boogie Woogie Festival in Lugano, Switzerland with outstanding national and international pianists, musicians and dancers.
Besides established musicians he also presented shooting stars and newcomers and provided them a platform for a start of their music career.

After the last edition 2017, Silvan paused to present his annual festival for two years in 2018 and 2019 for a creative intermission.

Nächstes International Boogie Woogie Festival im Jahr 2020

Die nächste Ausgabe von Silvan Zingg’s International Boogie Woogie Festival findet im Jahr 2020 statt.

In 16 Ausgaben seit 2002 hatte Silvan Zingg die Ehre, jedes Jahr ein spektakuläres Boogie Woogie Festival in Lugano (Schweiz) zu präsentieren. Zu Gast waren nationale und internationale Top-Pianisten, Musiker und Tänzer. Neben den etablierten Größen der Szene präsentierte er auch Shootingstars und Newcomer und bot ihnen eine Plattform für den Start ihrer Musikkarriere.

The world tour continues

February 2019 is THE month for the big world tour. After his tour through South Africa, Silvan Zingg went to Mont-Dore, France to participate at the famous Sancy Snow Jazz Festival. For the 30th anniversary of this festival, he performed four fabulous concerts together with his Trio.

Only a few days later, the three musicians traveled on to Panama in Central America. The Trio was guest at ‘The biggest little festival in the world’ – The 13th Annual Boquete Jazz & Blues Festival from 21st – 24th February 2019 on the slopes of Volcán Barú in Boquete, Panama.

What a great 2019 tour through South Africa!

After my first South Africa tour in 2018 I knew, I have to come back very soon to see those lovely people, my friends and fans over there again. This came true and so I headed off again to this beautiful country by the end of January 2019.

Danke für ein großartiges Jahr!

Das Jahr 2018 neigt sich dem Ende entgegen. Wenn ich zurückblicke und an meine persönlichen Highlights dieses Jahr denke, so gibt es einige.

Zunächst sind da natürlich die tollen Konzerte im Ausland. Im Januar war meine erste Tour außerhalb der Schweiz 2018. In Baku, Aserbaidschan durfte ich meinen „Die Welt des Boogie Woogie und Blues Pianos“- Vortrag halten und Konzerte für die Musikstudenten der Kunstuniversität geben.

Thank you for a great year!

The year 2018 is going to end soon. When I look back and think of my personal highlights this year, there are quite a lot.

First of all, there are of course the great concerts abroad. In January was the first tour in a foreign country in 2018. In Baku, Azerbaijan I was able to give my „The World of Boogie Woogie and Blues Piano“- lecture and concerts to the arts university music students.

Next South Africa Tour 2019

What a great surprise for all his fans in South Africa: In February 2019 Silvan Zingg will be back for some new concerts!

After a wonderful and successful tour through South Africa in 2018 which was also his first visit in Africa, Silvan will continue with a second tour in February 2019.

He has the pleasure to give totally five concerts for his South African fans in Sandton and around Cape Town and Johannesburg from 02nd – 10th February 2019.
