Throughout the 2020/2021 season, selected Swiss talents will again have the opportunity to perform before local audiences as a prelude to most of the concerts. A clapometer will measure the public' impression of these performances. The singer or instrumentalist who generated the most enthusiasm will have the chance to perform as a soloist during the following season. These twofold "overtures" serve not only as musical openings to the concert evenings but also as a gateway to the careers of tomorrow's stars.
