Experience the overwhelmingly rich sound, the energy and the enthusiasm of this big band featuring pioneering musicians from improvised as well as modern classical music. The eccentric line-up inspires composers from every possible musical direction. This concert features four premieres of remarkable big band compositions.
Alongside new works by Brendan Faegre, Matthias Kadar en Janco Verduin, the band will perform a taster to ‘Saul’ by Boudewijn Tarenskeen with singer Claron McFadden and Flemish actor Dirk Roofthooft. This music theatre production with the full big band will officially premiere at the Zeeland Nazomerfestival.
‘Thanks to its regular gigs at the Bimhuis this group has amalgamated into a buzzing organism with a strong repertory. The enormous wealth of timbre is the strength of this company. The open attitude of all its members makes it an incredibly elastic ensemble. They’re very attractive to go see in concert because they play with so much joy’ (de Volkskrant).
The Bimhuis restaurant is open prior to the concert from 6.30 til 8.30PM (reservations via 020-7882158). After the concert, the Bimhuis Café is open (free entrance).
