Julie Campiche writes;
Here is some musical news that I hope will find you in good shape!
While waiting to meet you around a glass after a concert, I wish you all a beautiful spring!
Julie Campiche Quartet
Tonight, the quartet is performing at the Jazzclub Unterfahrt in Munich, without an audience, but with a live stream. So wherever you are in the world, don’t hesitate to join us!

Several concerts in Switzerland and Germany in the near future (see date below)
Composition for the Cully Jazz
I have the pleasure and the honor to have been invited to compose a piece for the musical walk project created by the Cully Jazz Festival and the BCV.
For this composition, I am very happy to have collaborated with the Terpsycordes Quartet.
This project was the opportunity to make a first bridge between my professional activity as a composer and performer, and the Leenaards grant I received last September.
Treat yourself to a walk through the heart of Lavaux while discovering pieces of Swiss musicians specially composed for the occasion!
Bring your headphones to listen to the songs on your cell phone or put your phone on the boxes to listen to the music!
While waiting for the “live” version in the Lavaux, you can listen to the piece here
Montreux Jazz Artist Foundation & Musée Jenisch
One of my compositions played by the quartet has been selected for the exhibition ART & SONS born from a collaboration between the Jenisch Museum and the Montreux Jazz Artist Foundation. This unique experience where visual arts meets music opens on April 30th, UNESCO’s International Jazz Day.
Bring your cell phone and your headphones and let yourself be carried away. http://museejenisch.ch/fre/evenement/art_sons
New booking agency
Since last March, I have the pleasure to have joined the booking agency of the wonderful Tinka Steinhoff! I am very much looking forward to this new adventure!
Video London Jazz Festival
A little reminder for this video made last November for the London Jazz Festival.
This video has been the subject of several articles, notably in the French-speaking press.
“This Swiss harpist looks the times we live in straight in the eye. Her music dramatically expresses the anguish that stirs within us and the healing solutions to which she aspires.” Télérama
” She is one of the rare harpists who has made a place for herself in the world of jazz. Julie Campiche, composer and inspired instrumentalist, subtly intertwines electronic effect with acoustic sound to create somber yet luminous lyrical worlds. “Le Canard Enchaîné
This week, I am honored to be on the front page of Citizen Jazz magazine
A nice announcement of tonight’s concert in the Süd deutsche Zeitung
“Die Schweizerin Julie Campiche ist eine Meisterin an der Harfe.”
