Change in the Foundation Board of Klosters Music

The Foundation Board of the Foundation Art & Music, Klosters decided on the 2024 festival programme at its meeting on 20 October 2023. At the same time they said goodbye to two members of the Foundation Board and a new member was elected.

Klosters Music will present a first-class programme again next year, which was enthusiastically received and approved by the Foundation Board at its meeting on 20 October 2023. The programme for the sixth edition of Klosters Music 2024 (27 July to 4 August) will be announced in early December. Written ticket reservations will be possible from then on.

At the Foundation Board meeting, Franziska Jelena Saager and Dr. Jürg Steinacher, two members of the Foundation Board were bade a sad farewell due to reasons of age. As the founder, Franziska Jelena Saager, with her firm determination and great commitment, has decisively shaped the development of the foundation and has promoted it in an exceptional way. She will continue to be closely associated with the festival Klosters Music as a patron.

Jürg Steinacher was active in the Foundation Board for four years and enriched the festival with his musical knowledge.

We pass on our heartfelt thanks and great appreciation to both outgoing members of the Foundation Board for their contribution to the cultural life of Klosters.

Dr. Peter K. Neuenschwander, a lawyer from Zollikon, was newly elected to the Foundation Board. Peter K. Neuenschwander has had strong ties with Klosters since his childhood and is therefore very familiar with the local situation. The newly elected Foundation Board member owns a holiday home in Klosters and spends a few months there every year.


“I feel very connected to Klosters with my family”.

As long-time in-house counsel to the computer industry, former lecturer at the HWZ University of Applied Sciences for Business Administration Zurich and founding partner of the law firm Suffert Neuenschwander & Partner in Zollikon and Nyon, Peter K. Neuenschwander has outstanding legal expertise, especially in the field of information technology. He lives in Klosters, his second home, with his wife Eva between four and five months a year. The house on Talstrasse, where he himself spent his childhood vacations, is also a second home for his two grown-up children and grandchildren.

Neuenschwander is a member of the Klosters Tennis Club and the Klosters Ski Club. At his main place of residence in Zollikon, he has been involved on a voluntary basis in the fire department, the electoral office, the building authority and the church council, among other things. As a member of the Kulturkreis Zollikon and as a long-time opera house season ticket holder, music also plays an important role in his life. This is reinforced by his involvement in the Foundation Art & Music, Klosters. “With my many years of experience on the boards of numerous companies as well as my various commitments in public and non-profit organizations, I am pleased to be able to contribute to the further prosperity of Klosters Music in the future”, says the 67 year old.
