It is a major event, a legendary name remembered for eternity!
Friday July 19th, 2013, Montreux municipality will honor Claude Nobs memory by changing a Grand-Rue’s section’ name between the Royal Plaza and the Montreux Palace to: Avenue Claude Nobs.
The town’s initiative feels like a Claude style wink. From now on the Fondation du Festival de Jazz de Montreux, the Convention Center’s, and the Montreux Palace’s offices now can be found at theFestival’s founding father’s adress. His name will echo in the very same place his work does, as much in the public space as in the collective memory.
Together, Montreux' mayor Laurent Wehrli, Claude's great friend Quincy Jones, Thierry Amsallem, the Claude Nobs Foundation new president and Mathieu Jaton, the Festival’s director will reveal the new street plaque during the Montreux Municipality’s official reception.
