Newsletter Winter 2020

Dear friends and fans,

how are you? I hope you are all well? If not, I sincerely wish you a speedy recovery.

This year 2020 was a challenge for all of us. It ruined many plans, plunged many people into a crisis and certainly made us very thoughtful.

Much has been turned upside down for me too. So many planned concerts all over the world (Panama, USA, Israel, Norway, France,…) had to be cancelled, I couldn’t hold my beloved International Boogie Woogie Festival in May in Lugano, the popular concerts “Piano Jazz on two grand pianos” in Basel had to be postponed – to mention just a few of the many bad news this year.

However, this is not necessarily a reason to be sad or to be pessimistic. We cannot change what happened and we cannot make up for that time. It is even more important, to appreciate what we have and to believe in a better future. For some cancelled concerts we have already new dates set and I very much hope that these can be attended.

I miss so much the personal contacts with you, my fans, and the amazing feeling of being on stage. But at least I was able to stay in touch with you through the Social Medias. It touches me so much, to receive all this support from you and to see how many of you participate on my weekly online live concerts. For those who haven’t heard of it yet, take a look on my Facebook page and Instagram and follow me!

I also could use the concert-free time to expand and maintain my vegetable garden and I spent a lot of time outside in the sun. With my invention, the piano-home trainer, I stayed in shape and entertained you at the same time with some Boogie Woogie, Jazz, Blues and other music styles and topics via Facebook. Also I had time to think of new plans and projects which I can’t wait to realize, when everything got back to normal.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your loyalty and support. By ordering my CDs, following me on Social Media, sending me messages and letters, you are helping me a lot in these difficult times. I hope, we can see us again very soon at a live concert. Just keep yourself updated about upcoming concerts on my website www.silvanzingg.com.

Another small gift tip for Christmas: The CD Boogie Woogie Xmas with 15 Christmas tunes in Boogie Woogie style from the Silvan Zingg Trio is the ideal company through the Christmas season. You can order this and other CDs via my website or by sending me a message.

May the Christmas time be a calm and peaceful one for you and for the New Year I wish you only the very best, a lot of health, happiness, joy and the necessary foresight.

Hope to see you soon, yours
Silvan Zingg
