Jazz Maastricht is as concerned with jazz as it is with the city of Maastricht. A varied programme of activities aims to strengthen the creative and international climate in the Dutch city. The festival will be held from 9 March to 13 May 2017.
This year the festival in Maastricht features ‘Sun Ra Arkestra’.
Led by Marshal Allen (92), the legendary ‘Sun Ra Arkestra’ has now been orbiting planet earth for six decades, at the forefront of space-jazz exploration.
The festival hosts a variety of acts and performances, held at Theater aan het Vrijthof in the city:
– Explore the Jesse Passenier and Marie van Vollenhoven who present their first collaboration in a multimedia, mime, and music performance, ‘Blackwhite Gameshows‘.
– On 20 April listen to the sounds of a new bi-annual mini-festival: ‘EuJazz Nights‘ which aims to bring European jazz talent together. This time they’re bringing Belgian Limburg to you with the Muze Jazz Orchestra and the Tim Finoulst Trio.
