Item No. Artist2025
For more than twenty years the schwuler
männerchor zürich (schmaz) has been
delighting, surprising, touching and irritating
its audience. Schmaz stands for high level
amateur choral singing, for musical as well
as scenic versatility; it has always represented
gay interests as well. Since August 2011 Ernst
Buscagne has been conducting the choir.
He took over the baton from Karl Scheuber,

Regular full-length in-house productions
are organised with renowned directors and
