Jazz on Bells in Maastricht

"Jazz on Bells" 
A "first" product of the cooperation between the Hotel Derlon and the conservatory

MAASTRICHT - Let's hope that the weather for the folks near the Hotel "Derlon Maastricht" will be a little better than today, because otherwise, a truly unique and free concert could literally fall into the water. As part of "Culture on Sunday" the Derlon, in collaboration with the Foundation of Carillons, Kumulus, the City Centre Management of Maastricht and the Maastricht Conservatory, gives a sultry summer concert on the Onze Lieve Vrouwe (Our Dear Lady) square.


Between 15:00 and 17:30 city carillon player Frank Steijns (also known from André Rieu's Johann Strauss Orchestra) will perform in what arguably is the coziest and most French square of the Netherlands, together with his musical friends Dorona Alberti (singer at Gare Du Nord), Aron Raams (guitarist at Gare du Nord) and Greg Torunski (Saxophonist with the Torunski Brothers). "A truly unique and unusual assembly of musicians," they seem to think at the Derlon.

"The bells of carillons have been forming the sounds of Maastricht for centuries", sketches Frank Steijns in the specialty of the performance. "Many of Maastricht citizens and tourists know the sounds of the bells, but unfortunately are not able to see how they are played. That is why I am pleased to bring my mobile carillon with 43 real bronze bells and my musical friends Dorana, Aron and Greg to the terrace of the Derlon for a very special concert. A unique location with unusual programming: "Jazz on bells!"
Thanks to John for Translating this.

Hi Sue - wondered what had happened??! This would be so lovely to see Frank playing his "mobile" bells with the other musicians on such a pretty little square. I do hope everyone enjoyed it.
