Between laborious cranes and the industrial trail of the Port of Amsterdam, you can find Thuishaven: the cultural freehaven of the city. An uncultivated place in a ruddy area with endless possibilities.
Noordpool Orkest and Janne Schra bring a variety of worlds together with Vasalis. Poetry and letters from one of the greatest Dutch poets inspired new songs and compositions. M. Vasalis - pseudonym for Margarethe Droogleever Fortuyn-Leenmans – wrote legendary work such as 'Tijd', 'Afsluitdijk' en 'Drank, de onberekenbare'. Fifteen years after her death these poems form the red line in a poetic concert with influences of pop, jazz, and soul.
Singer Janne Schra had her breakthrough with her bands Room Eleven en Schradinova. She is known for her performances in the tv show 'De Wereld Draait Door'. Het Noordpool Orkest consists of dozens of ‘untamed musicians', led by conductor, composer and pianist Reinout Douma. On this Club Grachtenfestivalavond they are in chambermusic strength on the stage of the Romneyloods in Thuishaven. Stay after the performance to enjoy our own Club Grachtenfestival DJ!
De serie Club Grachtenfestival wordt mede mogelijk gemaakt door Stichting Steun Programmering Grachtenfestival.
