Within a summer tour through France, the Netherlands, Denmark and Germany, so-called multiplier events are intended to increase awareness of our ERASMUS+ project TEDMA.
Under the artistic and musical direction of the French saxophonist, composer and conductor Pierre Bertrand, the new programme "PEACE", the theme of peace, was brought to the fore in the current turbulent times. Compositions by the participating musicians of the CLASSICAL BEAT Orchestra were performed, with three special guests supporting the realisation: Besides the Frenchmen Stéphane Chausse (saxophone, clarinet) and Joel Chausse (trumpet), it was the Dane Steen Nikolaj Hansen (trombone) who expanded the international orchestra. The audience could look forward to festive Latin American jazz and South American songs, as well as compositions and arrangements by the young artists involved in the project.
A well-stablished team
Even if it is a matter of course, this international ERASMUS+ project is meant to remind us that with music, everyone works together in harmony, regardless of their religion, nationality, age, etc. For this reason, the CLASSICAL BEAT Orchestra, a large formation consisting mainly of young, already "prominent" jazz musicians from France and Germany, but also from other European countries, is a symbol of peace in itself. According to the makers of CLASSICAL BEAT, music should serve as a link and make people forget their social differences.
