Tour 2015 - Ode to Joy - Henk van Twillert & Vento do Norte_1
Time: 18:45 until 20:00
Location: Hervormde Kerk Kerkplein 1
attachmentsdetails Type: Concert

DESCRIPTION

2015 Tour "Ode to Joy - celebrating all the good things that we have" Vento do Norte is a unique ensemble consists of willful, young and talented musicians who combine a modern vision of chamber music with compelling interpretations. The group plays unique adaptations of Bach, Beethoven and Mendelssohn, transforms melancholic Fado music, stirs up rousing tangos by Piazzolla, and enriches the laden soul of James Brown. The group is a musical revelation - a rapturous experience that touches the soul one minute, and brings the house down the next. As far as Vento do Norte is concerned, playing the saxophone is all about bonding emotions with air. The group was formed in 2005 by Henk van Twillert, is based in Portugal, from where it is rapidly conquering the world: from festivals and theatres in Southern Europe to stages in Caracas, Venezuela and Dutch Antilles. In early 2007, the group was invited to play a series of concerts in Brussels and Antwerp to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the European Union. It also performed during the Liberation Day celebrations in Amsterdam. The highly talented musicians are all taught by Henk van Twillert, and many of them won many international competitions. As, a from time to time changing of elements, group they continue to win one prize after another. In 2007 and 2009 they were awarded by first prizes at the prestigious Concorso Internazionale di musica de camera ‘Città di Chieri’ in Italy. In 2009 they produced their first CD " Adagio for Saxophones". In 2011 they were on tour in Dutch Antilles, Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire and had played several classic concerts, school concerts and played in the opening night from the Bonaire Heineken Jazz Festival. In 2013 and 2014 they made did the “Oranje Tour” and the “Once upon a time in… Holland and Belgium” through the Netherlands and Belgium. Beside diverse concerts in Portugal they played also on the prestigious Amsterdam Canal’s Music Festival “ Amsterdam Grachten Festical 2013”. Versatile, competent, passionate and sincere. Vento do Norte brings together a new generation of musicians, who produce their own unique sounds and leave an indelible impression. Expect the kind of musical party you won’t want to miss.

Studying under the mentorship of the great jazz pianist Mike Longo, John absorbed the musical knowledge Mike had learned playing with musicians such as Cannonball Adderley, Roy Eldridge, Paul Chambers, and Dizzy Gillespie (in whose band Longo was the pianist and musical director for over 15 years). Alongside his studies with Longo, John also performed with the semi-professional Laguardia High School Big Band, under the direction of Bob Stewart. Stewart, one of the great tuba players in jazz history, passed on his years of experience playing with Charles Mingus, Gil Evans, David Murray, Taj Mahal, and Freddie Hubbard, among many others. In this ensemble, John performed with Branford Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, Gary Smulyan, Ray Barretto, Wynton Marsalis, and Randy Brecker. John received his Bachelor’s degree in music from The City College of New York, with a focus in music theory. As a teacher, John focuses on cultivating each student’s unique musical voice, while passing on the oral traditions of the great jazz masters. Tickets: kaarten@muzikc.nl or 010 - 4527860
