Zaantheater – Christmas concert met Nico van der Linden en Leon Mennen
21/12/2021 - 14:00 - 16:30 UTC+1
Imagine a jazz club in a Christmas atmosphere on Tuesday December 21, with these men: Maarten Koningsberger (vocals), Nico van der linden (piano) and Leon Mennen (bass guitar). Great musicians who guarantee enjoyment!
The sweet voiced voice of Maarten Koningsberger and the beautiful arrangements of Nico van der Linden; straight from the heart to the heart. We turn your hall into a cozy jazz club full of December atmosphere. The program features well-known and lesser-known standards and ballads from the American Songbook, known to the public through the interpretations of Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson, Nat “King” Cole, Lena Horne, Chet Baker, Ella Fitzgerald and countless others.
It is the “well-known song”: the tops and the valleys, wild longing, butterflies in your stomach, the ecstasy and the fear of losing: love cannot be sung enough.
Tonight it all comes over with some entertaining anecdotes here and there. Back to the middle of the last century with songs like Mad about the boy; He’s a tramp, You’re so nice, Guess who I saw today and What’s new? Maarten Koningsberger is world famous in classical music, but few know that he also ventures into light music. Perhaps The Voice of our country, he will at least show himself from a different side tonight or this afternoon. Imagine your theater or foyer: small round tables, a twilight lamp, perhaps an ashtray (!), Or is that going a bit too far? 🙂
Watch our trailer on Youtube and hopefully we will see you in the Zaantheater!
