LUCERNE FESTIVAL focuses on musical themes. In spring, they are more likely to be spiritual and reflective to match the Easter season. Choral music and compositions from the baroque period characterize the offerings. The longer summer festival has a more diverse approach in terms of its form, style and geography. Concert activities throughout the city, chamber music, large symphonies and the residences of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL Orchestra and the Lucerne Academy immerse the city in a summer frenzy of music.
