SWISS CONCERT at the Swiss Ambassadors’ Residence


A very special evening of music and song at the Swiss Ambassadors’ Residence

The Rotary Club of Chelsea is honoured to be hosted by the Ambassador of Switzerland to the United Kingdom (Hon. Dominik Furgler), who has graciously allowed the exclusive use of his private residence as the setting for what promises to be a magical evening of classical music and song. The proceeds of the concert will be donated to the club’s nominated charity, the Chelsea Community Hospital School (CCHS). The evening will showcase the talents of Olivia Geiser, one of Switzerland’s brightest classical music stars who will be performing a selection of rare swiss composition. She will later be joined by the delightful voice of Birgit Beer.
