Dear friends and colleagues,
With this beautiful weather, is there anything better than listening to great music in a fantastic setting outside with a delicious drink? This can be done on the weekend of 3 and 4 June at the free accessible festival ‘Music on the Dommel’ in Eindhoven. Carel and Juan Pablo play a few songs on the Saturday evening with the Student Harmony Orchestra Auletes with Paul van Gils. Also the famous violinist Lisa Jacobs will play some songs with this student orchestra.
On Sunday afternoon, Juan Pablo and Carel will talk about the various Argentine rhythms such as the Cueca, the Zamba, the Milonga, etc at the second stage. After that, they will perform on the main stage with the Carel Kraayenhof Ensemble.
A week later, on Sunday June 11, at 11.30 am, Carel and Lavinia Meijer play together in the beautiful Aegtenkapel in Amersfoort, during Rabobank Amersfoort Jazz. (1×60 min). This very well known jazz festival is always free of charge. Also this year there are dozens of indoor and outdoor locations where performances will take place.
Meanwhile, the musicians of the Carel Kraayenhof Ensemble are busy with the rehearsals for the new CD ’30! ‘. The release of the CD will take place on February 14, 2018. The musicians are also preparing for the new same-name theater concert that Kik Productions booked to theaters this season. The premiere will take place on April 8, 2018 at the Philharmonie in Haarlem. The tickets are already available. We hope to send you the final playlist in the next newsletter.
Our violinist Bert Vos will keep a video journal that you can follow through Carel’s YouTube channel. If you do not want to miss anything, subscribe to this channel, then you will always be the first to know when we have published something new.
Carel and Thirza
