SENA PERFORMERS INTERNATIONAL JAZZ LAUREATE FESTIVAL

Since 2017, the Rabobank Amersfoort Jazz festival has successfully organized the Sena Performers International Jazz Laureate Festival. Festivals from around the world nominate finalists from music competitions to present themselves to the international network and the public during Amersfoort Jazz, not with showcases but with full fledged concerts. The purpose of this event is to offer opportunities to exceptional World Jazz talents from home and abroad in the field of exposure, by connecting them to an international network. The international laureates also find their way to the regular stages of Amersfoort Jazz, whether or not in a unique line-up with other artists.
