Composition assignment: Sonic Phantasmagoria by Elif - Tolhuistuin, Sunday, 13-08 at 7:00pm:

"This concert will be a real experience: emotions and music, dance and projections and classical meets electronic. Elif is a pianist, singer and composer. A young creator at heart, with totally new work especially for the Grachtenfestival." - Brendan Walsh, programmer Opus Novum

New Notes: Juho Myllylä - De Duif, Monday, 14-08 at 5:00 pm:

"Juho plays 4 new compositions written especially for him. Spherical and eclectic works for recorder and electronics. In one hour you're going to hear a lot of different beautiful sounds, I'm sure!" - Marie-Luce Bree, director

Peter Somuah Group - Tolhuistuin, Tuesday 15-08 at 15:00:

"As a young jazz trumpeter, Peter was inspired by the greats of the last century (Miles David and Roy Hargrove) and combines this with musical styles from West Africa. The result is a crazy groove!" - David Grütter, jazz programmer

Brothers of Salma - Tolhuistuin, Tuesday 15-08 at noon:

"A concert with a ud duo, and with then compositions and own arrangements by Erik Satie (French composer from the last century) and Ross Dally (Irish folk musician). Very unique!" - Julia van de Beek, Marketing & PR

Matteo Myderwyk - Zuiderkerk, Sunday, 13-08 at 11:00am:

"Matteo combines classical, pop and jazz. And he invites us to attend the concert lying down, for example on your own yoga mat. I want to experience that!" -  Nina Worst, checkout assistant
