The Soundcafé in New York


Presenter and music journalist Louis Gauthier takes his radio
programme The Soundcafé to New York. The Soundcafé is a
show about classical music in a modern setting and gives both established musicians and young talent an opportunity to perform. This is the first time that this Dutch radio programme has worked together with programme makers in the US.

It is even more special because
The Soundcafé
is an independant initiative that is made by and for young people. In New York The Soundcafé has been given the opportunity to present Dutch musicians who have already established a name in the US such
as ocomposer Louis Andriessen, violinist Tosca Opdam, composer RubenNaeff and opera director
Jorinde Keesmaat.

Gauthier: “It is fantastic to be
able to make a programme in The Netherland Club, one of the oldest clubs in the city and just around the corner from the Radio City Music Hall. We also have the opportunity to work together WQXR, the biggest classical music radio station in New York.”The Soundcafé will recorded on 12 October and attending the recording is free of charge. The show will be broadcast by WQXR and the Concertzender at a later date and will also be available as a podcast.

This project has been made possible by a Cultural Grant from the Netherland America Foundation.
