Expression of Art Award – Sunday Jazz Concerts

The Conservatorium hotel has established a strong collaboration with the Conservatorium van Amsterdam; Amsterdam's University of the Arts, since the day of its opening in 2011. This award series emphasises the heritage and history of the building, which has been the house of the former Sweelinck Conservatory of Music from 1983 to 2008. This award will give four bands the opportunity to perform within the hotel and compete for the scholarship of €5000,- offered by the Conservatorium hotel. Like last year the Public Award of 750,- will be offered by Sennheiser, long term partner of the Conservatorium hotel. Join us for the Sunday Jazz Concert every last Sunday of the month from January until May and find out who will be the winner of the award during the Grand Finale in May.


The band

The fourth concert of the series will be by the Ben Fitzpatrick Quartet on 28 April. The Ben Fitzpatrick Quartet is a group featuring some of the rising stars of jazz from around the world. Their leader Ben Fitzpatrick comes from Dublin, Ireland and has developed a name from himself not only in Europe, but America as well. He has performed with numerous world renowned artists such as Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Heath, Ken Peplowski, Sean Jones, Vincent Gardner, Steve Wilson and Jimmy Greene just to name a few. All the way from Genova, Italy, Tommaso Perazzo brings a whole new concept to jazz piano playing. His virtuosic playing has made him one of the most sought after pianists on the scene today. Jort Terwijn, a local of the Netherlands, plays with soul and integrity. His playing is honest and every note he plays tells a story. Last but not least, Marcello Cardillo the drummer from Naples, Italy has a fiery way of playing and robust sound on his instrument. He plays with soul, intellect and pure feeling. If you come by to hear this quartet play, expect a full well-rounded jazz experience. You will be able to experience a soulful, fun and groovy performance soaked in the tradition of the music, but also in search of something new. This group will be sure to have you tapping your feet and grooving all night long.
