From Sunday 3 untill Tuesday 12 February, 2019, Calefax travels to the USA for a series of concerts and master classes in (a.o.) New York, California, Utah and Colorado.
Calefax in a minimalistic flavoured programme. With musical migratory birds by Carola Bauckholt, Steve Reich’s vision on Manhattan and a piece by Tansy Davies, the composer in residence of the Concertgebouw.
Is it a dream? Or reality? Calefax plays music from the twilight zone between dreams, imagination and everyday reality.

Hidden gems from Calefax’s repertoire enjoy the limelight.
A sing along concert for everyone aged four or more.
The five Calefax men work in a pipe factory. Every day they do the same and that suits them fine. So there is great panic when one day the orders stop coming in.
