Summer programmes NJO announced!
30 april 2021
Now that we see the sun appearing more and more often and the days are getting longer, we are starting to feel an itch: summer and with it our summer projects are coming! We are working hard behind the scenes on the programmes and are happy to announce this summer's NJO projects. Of course we will take into account all possible restrictions that may apply at the time. It concerns no less than four NJO programmes, which can all be seen during the NJO Summer Festival (NJO Muziekzomer Gelderland), but on other stages.
The complete NJO Symphony Orchestra led by French conductor Alexandre Bloch will perform the programma Naar een nieuwe wereld (Towards a new world) with works by Bernstein, Copland and Dvořák. In addition to the final concert of the NJO Summer Festival, the orchestra will also play in Het Concertgebouw and (with reservation) in Romania.

In 2016, violinist and king of gypsy jazz Tim Kliphuis visited the NJO and that was a great success. This year, the NJO Tim Kliphuis Ensemble returns with a series of exciting performances in which improvisation is central and classical, jazz and gypsy mix naturally.
Under the direction of conductor Jasper de Waal, the nineteen musicians of the NJO Brass Ensemble prepare a program together with choreographer / director Vincent Michels and Corpus Acrobatics. Water is central in this performance and the concerts take place upon or close to the water in Park Presikhaaf in Arnhem and the pond at Lodge (Jachthuis) Sint Hubertus in De Hoge Veluwe National Park.
The two tuba players and two euphonium players of the NJO Brass Ensemble will stay a little longer in Gelderland than their ensemble colleagues, because they also play in the NJO Tuba Quartet. This programme, in which the special sound of the low brass plays the leading role, will of course also be heard at various beautiful locations during the NJO Summer Festival, including in Kroondomein Het Loo and the Sheepfold Ermelo.
Dates and ticket sales
The concerts during the Muziekzomer and in the Concertgebouw will take place between Friday 30 July and Sunday 15 August, after which the NJO Symphony Orchestra will travel to Romania. Ticket sales for Het Concertgebouw start on 3 May and for the Muziekzomer in June.
