Zurich and Lucerne Festival have enjoyed a close partnership ever since the early 1990s. In 2005, Zurich became Main Sponsor of Lucerne Festival in Summer.

Zurich is convinced that a thriving artistic and cultural environment plays a significant role for the life of the society and therefore also for the customers, employees and shareholders. This conviction underlies Zurich’s desire to promote outstanding artists and make classical and contemporary music more accessible to a broad audience.

This goal of enabling access to classical music for a broad public is underlined by the free “40min” concert series with numerous events in the Lucerne Hall.

Since 2021, Zurich is also committed as a Founding Partner of "Music for Future" to supporting young artists and the audience of tomorrow's generation.

The world is changing at an unprecedented pace and it is time to take action for people  and the planet. Zurich has the knowledge, skills and spirit to make a difference and have a positive impact.  It’s why we care about the future of classical music and are committed to diversity and sustainability.
