UPDATE: We will play as part of the Grachtenfestival on the 11th of August, in Amsterdam Noord and Amsterdam Zuid. See you there!
A few weeks ago already, we took part in the ‘pitch’ competition of the Grachtenfestival in Amsterdam. Almost and nearly graduated musicians were invited to propose a concert programme based on one of three themes of the Grachtenfestival 2018. In January, we handed in our project proposal and we were then invited to come pitch this concert during the weekend of the Grachtenfestival on the 10th and 11th of February.
With a Nescio delegation of 7, we played some music and proposed our plan to create a new poem based on existing music, and have our in-house composer Tseroeja compose a new piece based on the poem. We were the last of this day to present our plans, and straight after our presentation we already heard that we were invited to come play several concerts as part of the Grachtenfestival. We’re very excited about this opportunity, we will make sure to post here and on our facebook page when and where the concerts will take place.
