On Saturday, the European Culture Awards will be presented in Zurich’s Tonhalle. Also present: singer Campino, presenter Barbara Meier, Paavo Järvi, music director of the Tonhalle Orchestra, and Ilona Schmiel, artistic director of the Tonhalle (from left to right).

Since 2012, the European Culture Prize has been awarded in the form of a Taurus to personalities, initiatives, artists and politicians who are committed to preserving European cultural heritage. The award ceremony is taking place in Switzerland for the first time this year and is not only about culture, but also about European solidarity, as the organizers have repeatedly emphasized.

The Tonhalle is the ideal host, according to a media conference on Friday. On the one hand, because Switzerland is not in the EU, but is in the heart of Europe. And, according to Paavo Järvi, Music Director of the Tonhalle Orchestra, because Zurich has “a surprising density of high culture”. That is expected in cosmopolitan cities like London, while Zurich is more familiar to many as a banking city. “I hope that people will also perceive the city as a place of culture in the future.”
