What do Giuseppe Verdi and our Engadin Tais forest have in common? The Camerata Pontresina! Thanks to its impressive tradition (the concerts of the spa orchestra take place since 1910), its history is firmly linked to the famous Italian composer of operas: In those early years, musicians from Verdi?s orchestra at La Scala in Milan played in the Camerata Pontresina, among them even the young Cellist Arturo Toscanini. These days, one cannot imagine our cultural summer without the daily spa concerts, and still they are popular with guests and locals of all ages. The 100 free concerts focus on the light muse, and from 11 and 12 a.m. entertaining classical music fills the air in the Tais forest and creates a dreamy atmosphere. In adverse weather, the concerts take place in the Conference & Culture Centre Pontresina or in the Reformed Church. Please note the information boards in the village.
