Premiere on November 9th, 2018, TROMP FESTIVAL Eindhoven
This program is inspired by the street culture in the Netherlands—from the old tradition of the marching wind bands to the urban hip-hop culture of today. In our multicultural society, we often meet other cultures on the street or in public places. This international connection is the common ground for both classical musicians and street performers.
The music in this program brings these different cultures together. Two classical percussionists will be leading the program. Later on a traditional wind band and a breakdance crew will join them as they explore the spectrum of sounds from the classical symphonic repertoire to the popular street music.
