A Meerjazz Treat!

Peter and Henk were awarded an Edison together in 2010 for their work with the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw. Now they are together at the helm of Beets Meutgeert Jazz Orchestra. With Meutgeert as band leader and Beets on the grand piano. The gentlemen crown their many years of fruitful collaboration with a platform for a new generation of jazz musicians.

Under the experienced leadership of Beets and Meutgeert, this 18-person big band guarantees surprising solo and ensemble playing, musical adventure and healthy, but razor-sharp swing. Each concert focuses on a different theme, which contemporary arrangements are made and given a quirky twist by the promising musicians.

Special guest is Marjorie Barnes from America. Marjorie Barnes first came to the Netherlands in 1975 with the successful group The Fifth Dimension. The band, which scored a worldwide hit with Aquarius / let the sunshine in, provided the support act for Frank Sinatra in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. In 1980 she came back to the Netherlands as a Broadway star in the musical Bubbling Brown Sugar. In 1981 she married dancer Ricardo Sibelo. Her marriage was the reason to stay in the Netherlands. Three years later she started her career as a singing teacher. First at the Hilversum Conservatory, later at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.
