Spring is definitely here when the Jazz and Writing&Perfomance departments of the Antwerp Royal Conservatoire tune into each other for When I’m still young, a one-of-a-kind collaboration you do not want to miss. Acclaimed guitar player Jakob Bro (DK) will leaf through his book of compositions and invite ten young musicians to explore and reinterpret. Simultaneously, actor Jurgen Delnaet will guide a gang of five rising performers in presenting a highly personal selection of contemporary Danish poetry. Together, these fine artists will paint a new landscape, grand and meticulously multi-layered.
