October Meeting 2016, an exciting three -day get-together of some of the leading young improvising musicians from the Dutch, Belgian, British, German and Norwegian scenes, based entirely on original productions. October Meeting is organized by Dutch Performing Arts and Bimhuis and will take place in the Amsterdam Bimhuis on October 7, 8 and 9 October.
Some twenty-five musicians will dream up and develop an exciting series of original pieces, some rehearsed in advance, others produced on the spot, with line ups ranging from large ensembles to duos or trios inspired by the spur and joy of the moment.
Bimhuis has a tradition of providing a platform for adventurous musical projects and its October Meeting serves as an engaging showcase for the lively international jazz and impro scene in the Netherlands, and will be an optimal occasion for musicians, concert presenters, promoters and other professionals in the field of adventurous music to connect.
