Swiss Music Council SMC

The Swiss Music Council is the umbrella association of music organisations in Switzerland and thus represents Swiss music life in all its diversity, with some 2000 wind bands, 1850 choirs, 200 orchestras both professional and amateur, thousands of individual musicians, 8 music theatres, 380 music schools with 230,000 pupils, and numerous institutions for tertiary education in music. The SMC campaigns for improved cultural and educational policies to further those who create, disseminate, distribute and preserve music in all its diversity.

The FONDATION SUISA also gives support to the SMC because we are keen to have a strong umbrella association that can be active on the national, political level to assert the interests of music and music-makers.
