Our Activities

B4 Concerts & B4Night Concerts

Pop-up Concerts

B4 concerts are half-hour concerts over lunchtime, which take place in the office of the foundation. The office is located by Petersplatz, near Basel University and the Hochschule für Musik. 

The B4 concerts gives advanced students of the Hochschule für Musik Basel or other colleges, singers or instrumentalists from the Schola Cantorum, the Classical section or the Jazz section the opportunity to perform a program to a small audience. For the audience the concerts offer a stimulating lunch break with small snacks on offer. The concerts take place every two weeks on Thursday at 12:30pm.

B4Night concerts take place roughly four times per year, although this is a point of contention amongst the young musicians. The concerts last an hour and a glass of wine is available afterwards. The program should have a particular theme or there should be a special reason for the concert.

The office has room for up to 60 people.

Entry is free.

Pop-up concerts are concerts, which take place in special locations and are designed for an audience of between 100 - 150 people. One can expect performances from music groups and solo musicians, who have applied to perform and present a good program - a program, which is to the liking of the board of trustees. The mix of ensembles and the organisation of the program is decided by the board.

After the concerts there is an apéro to encourage exchange and communication.
