A Musical Weekend
On 26 and 27 September 2020, the MG Lyss had an eventful weekend. After an open-air concert on Saturday, the band travelled to Lucerne on Sunday, where they spent the day together without their instruments.
But from the beginning: On 26 November the band planned to hold an open-air concert for the visitors of the weekly market. Due to the bad weather forecast, however, the MG Lyss moved their performance to the sheltered 'Hirschenmarkt' in front of the town hall. Because of this, the citizens of Lyss had a musical accompaniment while casting their votes. The band played a diverse programme containing everything from latin-pop to Hans Zimmer.
On Sunday morning, at 8.30, the band travelled to Lucerne by train, where we met our city guide. She showed us many interesting and beautiful places in the city and introduced us to its history. Even though some members hadn't quite recovered from the evening before, they all watched and listened attentively.
Shortly after noon we enjoyed a deserved lunch at the restaurant 'Rathaus Brauerei' – The home-brewed beer could of course not be missed.
In the afternoon the trip continued with a visit at the 'Blashaus', where we were shown around an instrument-maker's workshop.
Of course we also visited the KKL. After a guided tour through the building and a short apéro, we enjoyed a concert of film music, performed by the 'City Light Symphony Orchestra'.
