Patricia Kaas at the rehearsal in Zurich for the SkyDance 2011 shows

Hi everybody!

I spent Monday and Tuesday in Zürich having Symphonisches Orchester Zürich rehearsals for the upcoming SkyDance 2011 shows. There actually will be 2 shows in Geneva and 4 in Zurich. What can I say? All of the live orchestra music is conducted by brilliant Cristoforo Spagnuolo (wellcome to SOZ again, Cristoforo!). Miss Patricia Kaas visited the rehearsal yesterday. At two shows in Geneva she will perform 4 songs: "Les éternelles", "Il me dit que je suis belle", "D'Allemagne" and "Et s'il fallait le faire". Frédéric Helbert is also joining in for these songs. Orchestral arrangements for these and some other peices are made by Mr Wolfgang Drechsler who was very polite despite the amount of questions I asked him.

Just to give you an idea of what was going on there I'm pleased to share with you these pictures and a small video.

I'll let you know when something interesting happens.

See you in Geneva!
