Amsterdam Culture Club invites you to:

Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw: Millenials @ Bimhuis

Have you ever wondered what that black box sticking out of the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ is? This is the Bimhuis, the most important jazz venue in the Netherlands and considered to be one of the most renowned stages worldwide for experimental jazz music. Tonight, the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw will perform compositions by Dutch jazz millennials. Prior to the concert the director of the Bimhuis and the artistic leader of the orchestra will give an introduction. Afterwards you can discuss the performance over drinks with other internationals.

About the concert
Some consider The Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw the best and most varied, swinging big band of the Netherlands. Tonight they will perform compositions by Dutch Jazz millennials: young, outstanding musicians who have performed with this big band before but this time were invited to write their own compositions without appearing on stage themselves.

About the Orchestra
The Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw is a valued component of the jazz programming of the Concertgebouw and has been booked as a headliner at several international stages and festivals.

Brassaï @ Foam Amsterdam
Thursday, 31 October

Photography museum Foam informs and inspires the widest possible audience by presenting all facets of contemporary photography. At this event you’ll visit the exposition Brassaï, attend a mini masterclass on collecting photography and conclude with drinks in the museum attic with other internationals.

Foam exhibits all facets of the photographic medium in surprising ways and with the utmost attention to quality: from historical to contemporary work and from fine art to applied photography. World-famous photographers are exhibited alongside young, emerging artists.

Foam is proud to announce the first retrospective of Brassaï in the Netherlands. The French photographer of Hungarian descent is considered a key figure of 20th-century photography. Brassaï (1899- 1984) created countless iconic images of 1930s Parisian life. He was famous for capturing the grittier aspects of the city, but also documented high society, including the ballet, opera, and intellectuals.

Mini Masterclass
Exclusively for members of the Culture Club, Foam has created a mini-masterclass on buying and collecting photography. What should you look for when buying a photo? How do you determine the value of a photograph? What are some of the most characteristic techniques and materials of the medium? Where should you store and hang your artworks?
