New York!

P1180255-

It has been a journey we have been looking forward to for a long time and we are most happy to announce are two concerts in New York coming up!! After a trip in Chicago where we were invited by Constellation Chicago, an incredible fascinating and inspiring location, we are now in New York. Two locations with an ambitious and adventurous programming, Roulette in Brooklyn and (le) poisson rouge in Manhattan will be our following venues. In Roulette we’ll perform an evening show of Canto Ostinato. This spacious hall is a marvel and we’re looking forward to get Canto there going! (le) Poisson Rouge is another legendary location programmed with multimedia art, innovative performances and extravagant club nights, where we will perform a part of Canto Ostinato, the composition ‘Trio’ composed by our own Wouter Snoei for harp and electronica. Michiel Mensingh is the third Dutch composer presented that night with his composition ‘ Style Wars’ for harp and electronica.

Do check it out and we hope to see you there!
