Red Light Jazz Jazz te Gast

Tijn Wybenga & Friends ft. Avishai Cohen

Unique composer brings twelve top musicians to our venue.

On 7 and 8 June, the festival Jazz te Gast will take place, a biennial music festival which transforms the tiny village of Zuidhorn into the absolute center of European jazz. The iconic trumpeter Avishai Cohen is Jazz te Gast’s Artist in Residence and, together with composer Tijn Wybenga, is curating part of the program, in which 75 top musicians will give 25 concerts spread over two days.

On Sunday, when also the Red Light Jazz festival in Amsterdam takes place, Wybenga will bring a selected group of musicians (including Cohen) to our venue, consisting of Vernon Chatlein, Suzan Veneman, Anton Eger and Joachim Badenhorst, among others. It promises to be an exciting melting pot of new compositions, improvisations and spontaneous musical ideas from a total of 12 top musicians in different line-ups.
