Percussion ensemble KNA Lunteren
ensemble KNA Lunteren:
KNA percussion ensemble consists of roughly thirty dedicated musicians led
by conductor Marco Ostenk. Since the year 2000 the orchestra has been
preoccupied with concerts and concourses, consistently delivering musical
performances of an impressive level. In 2009 the orchestra even became
Dutch champion in its discipline and also partook in the World Music
Concourse. Their repertoire is characterized by a large variety of styles,
encompassing pop and rock, but also more blues-oriented styles of music.
Now Zappa's vintage blend of jazz and rock can be added to their already
broad range of skills. In sum: the KNA ensemble is not afraid to embrace
variation and new challenges!
band The Foolz is committed entirely to the work of Frank Zappa. The band,
consisting of Pedro Steneker (bass/vocals), Lex Kemper (guitar/vocals),
Remco Aalhuizen (guitar/vocals), Wan Kemper (keys/vocals) and Marco
Onstenk (drums), is a well-respected name amongst Zappa aficionados. In
2003 they released their live album Live from the Cherrytree. Furthermore,
they performed multiple times at the acclaimed 'Zappanale' festival and
also made much lauded appearances at Zappateers-organized festivals in
Bradford-On-Avon and Corby.
people are vaguely familiar with the name of Frank Zappa, but only few
know just exactly who he was. Hence, preceding the concert, radio
presenter and Holland's most famed Zappa expert Co de Kloet will provide
us with a lecture concerning the life and works of Zappa. Zappa challenged
many a musical convention and in doing so merged musical styles that
previously seemed irreconcilable. In an engaging fashion Co de Kloet will
invite the audience into the mind of the composer, demonstrate his working
method, and elucidate Zappa's socio-political brand of lyricism. De
Kloet's lecture thus promises to be an inspiring experience for Zappa
novices and adepts alike.
into the night things will get even more inspiring as, over the course of
two hours, the musicians will allow the audience a glimpse into the
musical universe of Frank Zappa. Here, previously attained knowledge will
be heard and seen in practice. The ensemble and the band will separately
and collectively perform pieces of Zappa's work, touching on all aspects
of his impressive oeuvre. Some songs of note that will be performed
include: Echidna's Arf, Little Umbrellas, T'mershi Duween and What's New
