The Konrad Koselleck Big Band is an institution in Amsterdam. Everymonth, this orchestra leader performs with his 17-piece band in thefamous club Sugar Factory. Songs from musicals, pop, cabaret, rockand jazz, the Konrad Koselleck Big Band doesn't mind what's on theprogram. The unconventional approach of this line-up is largely dueto the way in which Koselleck himself arranges the pieces. Hissubtle approach is unique and his arrangements are full of humorand enthusiasm and a real feel for entertainment. Lydia van Dam,one of the best jazz vocalists in the Netherlands, is a specialguest at this year's festival. The Konrad Koselleck Big Band hasbeen together for over four years now and every year they improveand are more exuberant.
