Innovation in classical music suits KAM

Typical for KAM are the innovative programs and the exceptional contact with the audience. Musicians take chamber music aficionados on an adventure. To support this progressive way of working, The Bunschoten Fund has made a Quick Scan available, worth € 5,080.

KAM can rightly be considered as one of the most adventurous concert series in Amsterdam. For both the experts and those who want to acquaint themselves with a solid repertoire, but within new frames and without downgrading from the top level. KAM musicians take the listener to a world of new ideas and collaborations with musicians, dancers, writers and filmmakers.

Another notable feature of KAM concerts is the brainstorming and rehearsing by the musicians, and the final performance of the program in the Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ, TivoliVredenburg and other venues. The integral process from brainstorm to performance is accessible for the public, for example through (documentary) films, public rehearsals, webcasts of classic broadcasters and other online media.

The performance continues beyond the concert stage, especially through a dialogue with the business and management world. Coupled with every concert in the series is a separate concert at the Nyenrode Business University, followed by a lunch of the musicians with a selected group of Nyenrode students. This way KAM concerts creates a bond between two worlds that have a lot to say to one another.

In 2016, when The Bunschoten Fund supported KAM, the program presented several special concerts. Such as the enchanting and poetic concert about the night, Nocturne, in Kasteel Nyenrode, with the Ragazze Kwartet and Dichter des Vaderlands (Dutch national poet) Anne Vegter. Anne Vegter told stories about dreams, about insomnia and about a nightly relationship. With his light design, Maarten Warmerdam created a pitch-black night. The music was written by György Ligeti, Terry Riley and Arnold Schönberg.
