A truck transformed into a mobile scene to play concerts everywhere and for everyone

Orchestre de la Suisse Romande transformed a truck into a mobile scene to play concerts everywhere and for everyone. 

(Programme concluded and no longer supported by the Trafigura Foundation)

Trafigura Foundation’s mission is to offer equal opportunities to vulnerable populations suffering from exclusion. Our partner Orchestre de la Suisse Romande (OSR) had an innovative idea that allowed to open access to classical music to those groups who, for different reasons (handicap situation, cultural differences or socioeconomic challenges), do not attend concert halls.

OSR found an unused circus caravan and, with the support of the Trafigura Foundation, transformed it into a mobile scene perfect to play ensemble music everywhere and for everyone. During spring and summer 2021, the OSR’s caravan travelled around Lake Léman and offered over 20 concerts in schools’ playground and seniors’ residences, bringing the experience of music to the doorsteps of Swiss citizens.
