Engadin Festival - Calmus, Vokalensemble in Zuoz

Zuoz
The internationally renowned vocal ensemble "Calmus" visits Zuoz as part of the Engadin Festival.

The Calmus Ensemble from Leipzig is one of the world's leading vocal ensembles. In the church of San Luzi Zuoz, they continue the Engadine tradition of a cappella concerts with the best ensembles. Emotionality, homogeneity, precision, lightness and humour - this is what characterises Calmus. The singers' passionate joy of making music, their wide range of tonal colours, their sound culture and their imaginative programmes never fail to inspire.
