International Magic Congress / MRS 2016

22nd, 23rd, & 24th April 2016 in Parktheater Grenchen

WELCOME!

The performance of the Grenchen International Congress Swiss Magic has tradition.

The first congresses were conducted in 1957 and 1962, at that time organized by the then President of the MRS / CMS (Magic Ring of Switzerland / Cercle Magique Suisse), Willi Bucheli and 1962 by Albert Wetzel. The founding of the MRS / CMS took place in 1939.

The 1977 Congress began the era of the Urs Saner Orsani organized congresses. This was followed by congresses in 2000, 2003, 2006, 2010 and 2013. All of these magic congresses stood out by offering a high degree of magical artistic quality throughout the performances and seminars. In addition, the personal touch Urs Saner Orsani brought to the Congresses has made them popular and a well-known event internationally.
