About the Event
Join one of our café nights to start the evening with your friends or meet other internationals! This time while enjoying live music by a quartet of saxophonists.
You're welcome at our living room between 19.00 and 22.30. Our café isn't like any other in the Netherlands, because we guarantee you can come alone! We will always have multiple volunteers available eager to meet you and connect you to other internationals. It is the perfect opportunity to build a social network, which we know can be tough in a strange country. Moreover, you're allowed to bring your own food and snacks (not drinks!), so it is the perfect chance to share a dinner with someone and enjoy the weekend! We have some house rules to provide a pleasant experience to everyone (read more below).
All in all the perfect place to start the night with your friends or meet new people. We're looking forward to meeting you there!
About the live performance
Tantrum Saxophone Quartet is a dynamic contemporary classical music ensemble that was formed in 2020 in The Netherlands by Belgian and Portuguese saxophonists. The members include Artur Lopes, Dauphine Van der Velpen, João Faustino and Ruben Almeida. In 2021, the quartet received first prize at the Willem-Twee Chamber Music Contest and in 2023 the Grand Prize for chamber music in the New York Music Competition. The quartet engages actively in their contact with composers, for example Patrick Ellis, whom’s work they premiered back in 2022.
Tantrum Saxophone Quartet is an ambitious ensemble that blends traditional saxophone techniques with contemporary and folk music. The group's upcoming program highlights the Portuguese music genre of Fado, featuring music that emotionally expresses the country's soul and the stories of its people. This program will showcase the quartet's vivid sound, stunning improvisations, and engaging performances. Fado repertoire will include favorite songs from legendary musicians such as Carlos Paredes, as well as lesser known compositions featuring the quartet's unique sound. Don't miss the chance to experience this mesmerizing performance!
