PROGRAM / BIG BANG SEVILLA 2017
1 April 2017 - 2 April 2017
Hop Frog /
Hop Frog & Junior Brass Band: Music | Bert Bernaerts & Tijl Piryns: Coaching
What happens when a young jazz big band gets infected with the HOP FROG - streetvirus?
Possible symptoms of the virus are: an urge for musical experiments, dancing feet and vocal
outbursts. You'll definitely discover a new style!
HOP FROG fanfare is a Belgian brass band which operates at the borders of free jazz,
theatre and absurdism. HOP FROG musicians Bert Bernaerts (trumpet) and Tijl Piryns
(percussion) will rehearse in Sevilla with The Junior Jazz Band. The result of this intense
week of rehearsals will be presented in a concert where all HOP FROG and Junior Jazz
Band musicians will make you smile and... dance.
The Nomad Project: In each version of the festival, the welcoming country invites a musician
or a collective from another country. These “nomads” will prepare a live show where they will
perform together with children or young musicians from the host country.
Hop Frog will also perform on Oct. 9th at 13:30h at Alameda de Hércules on a life street
