Royal Jazz 40 Festival

All news

September 7th 2018

The Royal Conservatoire's Jazz Department Celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. What started out in 1978 as a regional jazz class under the guidance of Frans Elsen and Peter Nieuwerf with only Dutch students, has grown into an internationally renowned Jazz department over the last four decades. An outstanding moment to contemplate on what has been achieved so far but also what the future will bring.

Check out our 40 year history, festival programme and former projects.

Be on the lookout for masterclasses and performances by legends as Joshua Redman, Peter Beets, Fay Claassen, Christina Fuchs, Makaya Mcraven, The Royal Conservatoire Big Band, Eric Ineke's Jazz Express Extended and many others.

Monday 8 to 12 October.

Kees van Baarenzaal, Free admission.
