Description

Expression of Art Award – Sunday Jazz Concerts
The Conservatorium hotel has established a strong collaboration with the Conservatorium van Amsterdam; Amsterdam's University of the Arts, since the day of its opening in 2011. This award series emphasises the heritage and history of the building, which has been the house of the former Sweelinck Conservatory of Music from 1983 to 2008. This award will give four bands the opportunity to perform within the hotel and compete for the scholarship of €5000,- offered by the Conservatorium hotel. Like last year the Public Award of €750,- will be offered by Sennheiser, long term partner of the Conservatorium hotel. Join us for a Sunday Jazz Concert every last Sunday of the month from January until May and find out who will be the winner of the award during the Grand Finale in May.

The band
The fourth concert of the series will be a performance by the Adrian Moncada & String Quartet on Sunday 26 April. The Adrian Moncada & String Quartet is a project where tradition has a conversation with modernity. Using the classical chamber setting of piano with string quartet, combined with the influences of contemporary music and jazz, the ensemble brings compositions that explore soundscapes and textures, while being open to 'miracles' in the moment by leaving space for improvisation.
