I will be active in two concerts at the Amsterdam Cello Biennale 2016. (Although I do not play cello myself, it is my favorite string instrument).
- 22 Oct 16.15, Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ: The Hello Cello Orchestra

22 Oct 16.15, Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ: The Hello Cello Orchestra
Emile Visser (soloist) and me (conductor, percussion) will perform with an orchestra of 160 young cellists (from 7 to 20). I wrote a piece for them which includes elements from rock, Indian music, romantic drama, free improv and more. So far the rehearsals are big fun and it is wonderful to see the kids with sparkling eyes when they start improvising.

Jerome Pernoo is an amazing (classical) cellist who really is up for adventure. We of Zapp4 are thrilled to play with him, both in written notes (our own) and improvised sections. Soon we will have our first rehearsals with him so we are very curious about what that will bring. We hope to see you there.
