Jazz On The Sofa
Sunday November 6st sees a new edition of our Jazz Festival in Zeist.
This time it features a.o. my musical friends from Poland and Israel.
The festival also hosts a After-Party, a vocal workshop and the first ‘Zeister Guitar Award‘. Check it out!
The finale of our little, community based, world music festival and concert series at the legendary Vollenhove flats in Zeist was a huge success.
A peaceful audience and music created a lovely atmosphere of unity.
The second edition of our VOLfest concert series and festival will start again this year in december!
“That was proved at the
concert by grandmaster Lotz! Just as Timothy Leary broke lances on
the field of applications of psychedelics, so
Mark Lotz broke them for the jazz flute.”
Excited to meet many new musicians in music.
Performances with the Mark Lotz Trio, as guest with the Atempo trio, in improvised music and masterclass.
