0C Celsius, frozen fingers, and my 100 years old violin full of cracks suddenly.. Problem doubled!
0C in March?

And 100 years isn't very old, I have three guitars that are 60+, and two more 40+, and another 30+, so that's 300 total!

you are describing an event no matter how you spin it, you'd be liable to get the usual fine imho, your guests too.
You're asking them to lie about the fact that they're paying for entry with the 50 chf.
In the years since I am living in Switzerland I have been in more than few socializing, dinners, parties etc, organized by Swiss, were the organizer of the event collected money for the expenses (drinks, food etc). Usually there was a box where we left the money and it was also normal to tell/ask how much to drop into the box.
I guess it is completely ok to collect money for expenses, no one ever raised an eye that it is improper or illegal. Even when the whole thing is completely strange to my Slavic habits, it seems quite normal in Zentralschweiz.

Re: Private gathering VS Event / Concert

wow - certainly not the case here in th Far West.

When we host concerts, we certainly do not charge and all the monies go to the artists. We are lucky we are also allowed to organise concerts at 'our' Church - with no charge for rental, as long as I do after cleaning myself.

Re: Private gathering VS Event / Concert

I was reading the press release, in French if that matters, from the BAG announcement last Friday and the loosening of restrictions on indoor gatherings specifically said from 5 to 10 for "friends and family". So gathering 10 strangers or random people is not in line with what they said.

Re: Private gathering VS Event / Concert

I know the spirit of the law might be getting a bit twisted, but the rule itself says max 10 people in a private gathering. It recommends them to be from as few household as possible.

So by the looks of it you'll get a load of frowns from people, but I can't see anything wrong with it. As far as friends go, is there such a thing as a legal definition of a friend? There are no strangers, only friends you haven't met yet...

Re: Private gathering VS Event / Concert

10 people and music should make some noise, I'd be more worried about neighbors. Unless it is a single house outside from city center.

According to the new measures, private gatherings up to 10 people inside are again allowed.
Let's say, in theory..that I'm a musician and I invite 9 EF members to a private concert in my living room. (Better one of yours, mine is pretty small..) Invited EF members appreciate live music a lot, so they spontaneously give me a cake, bottle of wine or 50 CHF as a present.
In your opinion, would this be legal or am I with one foot in prison already?
And, how much you miss live events? - Would you come?
Thanks for your thoughts and opinions!
My opinion? Well, you asked for it. I, like anyone else, currently live in a World (including even Switzerland) in which everyone is suffering, in some way or another, and making huge sacrifices.

It’s completely up to you if you want to host this tooting and hooting thing. That’s one of the reasons why I double FFP2 mask for even the simplest of daily tasks.

Re: Private gathering VS Event / Concert

It seems that you already know the answer to your questions. But are looking for a bunch of us to say, of course you are right.

And this is why the infection and death rates are increasing again. You need to isolate, not to find cleaver ways how to get around the rules.

Recently very good friends of ours, a couple, asked us to come and play for them. They are music lovers.
We didn't shake hands, didn't hug, did not have a glass of wine. We came (me and my partner - both bubble and music) all of us wearing ffp2, we unpacked our instruments and play 30min live music for them. Then we packed, talked for 5 min and left.
They wrote me later in the night it was the best thing and probably the most amazing moment for them since October - when last live events were allowed and numbers started getting higher..

Some people need shopping mall, some people might need this. While one thing is allowed, the other is not.

I don't think with our mini concert for our friends we increased the infection /death rates.
