Concertzender Benefit Festival

tue 6 may 2014

On Tuesday 6 May the Concertzender will organize a benefit festival in the Amstelkerk in Amsterdam. Liza Ferschtnan, Ragazze Quartet, Yuri Honing, Guus Janssen, Erik Bosgraaf, Rosa Ensemble with Eefje de Visser and the Amsterdam Klezmer Band will be performing.


For over 30 years the Concertzender has been broadcasting music of the highest quality, from classical music to jazz and from experimental electronic music to world music.


Now however our future is threatened because two sponsors have withdrawn their support. This means that we will lose 100,000 Euros annually, and that is approximately two thirds of our total income. Also it means that we have to find new accommodation. This is the reason that we are organising the benefit festival.


Many artists support the Concertzender and have promised their cooperation. A number of these artists have agreed to play during the Benefit festival in the Amstelkerk on 6 May.
