NJO goes gipsy
4 aug • 7 augBuy tickets
This summer violinist and king of gypsy jazz Tim Kliphuis will coach an ensemble of seven wind instruments, thirteen string players and a harp. He will work with them towards performances in which improvisation is central and classical, jazz and gypsy alternate. Kliphuis not only challenges classically trained NJO musicians to go off the beaten track, he also takes the audience with him on this journey.
Also in 2016 Tim Kliphuis and his trio visited the National Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands and that was a great success. This time he comes alone and, playing the violin, accompanies the ensemble to a series of concerts that will be different every time and in which boundaries between music genres disappear.

The performances of the NJO Tim Kliphuis Ensemble will take place during the NJO Summer Festival in the Town Hall in Arnhem and Veluvine Theatre in Nunspeet. The performances in and around Nunspeet are made possible by a contribution from the Van den Broek Lohman Fund. Ticket sales will start on June 10, 2021 (June 7 for Friends of the NJO) via the NJO Summer Festival.
