Neujahrskonzert mit dem Konzerthausorchester Berlin
Jong Metropole will be touring this summer with a symphonic jazz & pop programme. The orchestra, consisting of students from both the jazz and the classical departments from the Dutch conservatoires, will be led by conductor, composer, arranger and pianist Jochen Neuffer. The programme includes the work „Reunion“ by Damiano Pascarelli, es-pecially composed for Jong Metropole. This young composer, arranger and conductor won the Rogier van Otterloo Award in 2019, which allowed him to take lessons with Vince Mendoza in Los Angeles and write this commissioned composition during Covid lockdown: the work represents the hope and the desire to play together again.
