KC Big Band plays New Cool Collective
za 29 april 2023 - 20:15
For the last project of the academic year 2022-2023, KC Big Band will be working with the composer, arranger and pianist Willem Friede.
During his career, Willem Friede has gained broad experience in composing for film, theater, commercials and arranging for various ensembles, ranging from small groups to large scale orchestras. He is the pianist of New Cool Collective and MD of their Big Band.
The project KC Big Band plays New Cool Collective will focus on groove based big band music, where latin influences, soul elements and dance beats, layered with jazz big band sounds, can be expected. Together with the Big Band, Willem will present diverse repertoire, combining the tunes from the New Cool Collective and Willem Friede’s own originals, in two special concerts: Friday, April 28, at 20:00 in Studio 1, Amare and Saturday, April 29, at 20:15 in Theater Dakota, The Hague.
Dit project wordt ondersteund door studenten van de KC-afdeling Art of Sound en wordt georganiseerd door ProJazz en Theater Dakota.
