neo-fanfare 9×13

a feast for the eyes and the ears

What do you get when you combine nine leading musicians, contemporary music and a marching band? 9×13!

With flute, saxophones, horn, trumpet, trombones, tuba and percussion 9×13 brings contemporary music directly to a broad and diverse audience. At first look, a traditional marching band, but it’s much more. It’s a brass band reborn: theatrical, challenging and versatile. 

The finest contemporary composers cut loose and re-think the rules of marches, ballads, dances and waltzes. Enticing new music, with taut choreography and a skilled theatre direction that embraces narrative, abstract and absurd. Whether that’s at festivals, in the park, on the street, or in the concert hall, for a special event or simply in your front yard. Allow yourself to be challenged, moved, shaken and stirred by the cutting edge productions of 9×13

“En wie denkt dat fanfares alleen maar goed zijn voor van feestvreugde overlopende hoempa, moet luisteren naar Neo-Fanfare 9×13. Het kleurrijke zootje ongeregeld trekt bitterzoete melancholie uit zijn toeters.”
