The Bouwkunde concert in May was the closure of a long period for Martin van der Horst as our second tenorist. Martin became a member of the band on October 20, 1985. For years Martin and Joan drove together to Barchem, Martin coming from Emmen and picking up Joan from Hardenberg. It has been a very nice period of 33 years.
Also for Volker Winck, our first tenorist, the May concert was his last concert with the Millennium Jazz Orchestra. We will miss his warm personality, his wonderful playing and solos on an exceptionally high level!
Sander Zweerink has also been a band member for a long time. In recent years, from ca. 2013, he was our important lead trumpeter and he managed to bend the orchestra’s total sound to his will.
Thank you Martin, Volker and Sander.
