Award-winning Dutch teen musicians to present concert
The Portland Dutch Society will present the fifth-annual Classical Musicians of Holland concert May 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Old Church in downtown Portland. The performance features three winners from Holland's most competitive young adult classical program, the Prinses Christina Concours, and is part of a North American tour which includes concerts in Vancouver, British Columbia, Calgary, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
On the verge of major professional careers, violinist Yente Lottman, trombonist Niels Jacobs and pianist and composer Maxim Heijmerink blew the Prinses Christina Concours judges away with their captivating interpretations, technical prowess and musical maturity. With additional accolades that include international prizes, national television and radio appearances, and Concertgebouw Amsterdam performances, these young musicians are celebrated as the nation's finest representatives of rising musical talent. While making solo appearances across The Netherlands, all three continue to receive expert tutelage from master teachers at the Amsterdam Conservatory.
Tickets to the concert are $12 general admission, $5 for students online at theoldchurch.org. Program details and performer biographies can be found online at portlanddutch.com.
