Janine Jansen

Janine Jansen's last International Chamber Music Festival Utrecht

29 June 2016

This year’s International Chamber Music Festival Utrecht is Janine Jansen’s last as Artistic Director. The festival runs from 29 June to 3 July, with Janine performing in many concerts including the opening concert on 29 June, and the closing concert on 3 July when she performs Mendelssohn’s Octet with her successor – cellist Harriet Krijgh.

Janine founded the festival in her home town and after 13 years, has decided to hand over the festival to Harriet. Like Janine, Harriet is from Utrecht and is the same age as Janine had been when she started the festival.

Other artists performing at the festival include Daniel Blendulf, Itamar Golan, Julian Rachlin, Jan Jansen, Martin Fröst and Lawrence Power.
