Dear friends and colleagues,
As our good friend and colleague you probably know that in 2006 Carel recorded the CD ‘Guardians of the Clouds’ with Ennio Morricone’s music. This CD is still available in our webshop. Ennio Morricone will be playing in The Netherlands during this next month. Because we highly appreciate you as a receiver of our newsletter we would like to offer you a free Morricone’s composition which Carel recorded but is not present on the CD. The title of this song is ‘Playing Love’, with Sebastian van Delft on the piano.
On April 16th Carel and Juan Pablo will take part on the benefit program from Omreop Max together with the Hersenstichting (brain association) in order to raise as much money as possible for research projects. To be seen on the Dutch channel Nederland 1 at 21:30hrs.
Crowdfunding – Liberación- Carel Kraayenhof Ensemble (CKE)
We would like to thank the more than 75 supporters for their financial donation. With more than 30 days still to go we have reached more than 90% of our financial target for this campaign. It is heartwarming to see all the reactions and donations, from the small to the large ones. Some supporters have donated a great amount, €1.500, and will receive a new composition from Carel as a reward. Carel is also looking forward to all the ‘thank you’ phone calls he will place to all supporters who donated a smaller amount. The musicians are also enthusiastic to meet all the supporters who will come to attend the rehearsals. Our crowdfunding campaign is runs on the Stichting Voordekunst platform. This association is affiliated to the ANBI (Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling), a cultural organization. This means that any donation to our campaign has tax benefits to the person or company making the donation. For more information please visit: https://www.voordekunst.nl/anbi.
Unfortunately we have not yet found a sponsor for ‘Liberación’. At this moment we do not know if the Fund of Performing Arts will grant us subsidies, especially after being denied subsidies from the VSB Fund. We will keep our fingers crossed, in the mean time the CKE will work on preparing themselves for the show.
On Sunday the 6th of April, at 15:00hrs, Carel and Juan Pablo will give a special unique kids concert at the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ in Amsterdam. The presentation will be done by Dieuwertje Blok. The concert will last 60 minutes.
In the season 2014-2015 the famous harp player Lavinia Meijer will be the “The Residing Artist” at the Philharmonie in Haarlem. This means that she may plan several exceptional evening programs, with special guests with who she will perform. For September 12 2014 she has invited Carel to program this evening with her. This promises to be a wonderful program. Tickets are available via: LINK
Currently we are waiting for an answer from the Fund for Performing Arts on our request for travel subsidies so we can finalize the arrangements of our trip to Indonesia at the end of May. If these subsidies are granted, the CKE will give two concerts and a workshop in Jakarta and one concert and workshop in Yogyakarta.
But before that we are going to Germany. ‘Carel Kraayenhof y su Sexteto Canyengue’ will perform on the 26th of April in Osnabrück.
After that, on the 29th of April, Carel and Juan Pablo will depart to the Middle East for a private concert.
