who almost made the reed quintet seem the best musical format on the planet. - The TimesMore about Calefax
Uğurcan Öztekin is the winner of our international composition competition for reed quintet. He won the first prize with his composition Conference of the Birds Amsterdam .
In these uncertain times due to the Coronavirus we still want to provide you with live music! Calefax organizes an online solo concert by our saxophonist Raaf Hekkema on Sunday 5 April, straight from his living room.
Unfortunately due to the Corona virus, we sadly have no choice than to cancel the tour. It is with deep regret that we are forced to make this announcement. The tour will be postponed and the concerts rescheduled for a later date.
Calefax tours six to eight concertprogrammes per season in the Netherlands and tours abroad to a.o. the USA, China, Japan, UK, Eastern-Europe and Germany.
