Congratulations to Loek van den Berg!

9 January 2023

During the evening of the finals of the Dutch Jazz Competition in BIMHUIS, a week before Christmas 2022, Loek van den Berg was handed the prize for Best Composition for Wayfarer, the title track of the Loek van den Berg Quintet debut album of 2022 (Zennez Records). Wayfarer was chosen from over 100 applications by a jury consisting of Benjamin Herman, Michel van Schie, and Wiboud Burkens. The composer and saxophone player Van den Berg, a member of the Batavierhuis artist center in his hometown of Rotterdam, took home a cheque of € 3000,-, which was happily provided by Buma Cultuur.
