Snappy Hour

The return of the VrijMiBo (Friday afternoon drinks)

Mattijs van de Woerd and Maarten Ornstein like to keep things compact and cosy. That's why they will both perform half a concert on the same Friday afternoon in Splendor's bar. Mattijs brings along piano man Gerhardt Brauhaus, who will be inaugurating Splendor's brand new bar piano. Drinking songs by a.o. Robert Schumann and Maurice Ravel are in order, as well as an alcohol-themed karaoke set. Maarten will present this year's yield, featuring music by Louis Guglielmi, John Coltrane, Bach and Schubert, and will subsequently join the festivities in whichever way possible.

Maarten: "One thing's for sure: we'll be reluctantly giving it a full 60%."
Mattijs: "One thing is certain: all beginnings are easy. After that, we'll see."

You will understand that you are in for an unforgivable Friday afternoon. And remember: both gentlemen still owe you half a concert after this.

Mattijs van de Woerd - zang
Maarten Ornstein - sax/klarinet
Gerard Bouwhuis - piano

Member concert
Splendor can only be the independent and free hub that it is, thanks to the members who support us. We pay them back with our specialty: music. Every year, all Splendor musicians play one concert that's free for this crucial group to whom Splendor owes its everyday existence. Combined with many other events, this means that our members have free entrance to about 80 concerts a year for €9,99 p/m (and €4,99 p/m for minima and students!) – and receive a discount for all other concerts. Pretty good deal, right?

The members enable Splendor to remain independent, which is the only way to secure real freedom in programming, experimentation, risk-taking and the promotion of young, upcoming artists. If you can think of another place without a central programming, where last-minute concerts can be planned any moment, where there is no backstage and artists and audience are constantly mingling and hanging out at the bar, where mysterious creative outbursts can be presented that are often labeled 'too risky' elsewhere, and that still guarantees high quality by unleashing the best of The Netherlands' music scene in this creative playground – you get a free membership!
