Coal Harbour, a Rotterdam based project initiated by jazz- and classically educated musicians, is a project that is bound to explore the borders between classical composed music and jazz music. These two huge musical traditions and the unique instrumentation of the group; a jazz sextet combined with a classical string quartet, offer a broad variation of musical possibilities.
The repertoire of the project consists of adaptations of classical- and jazz pieces complemented by original compositions written for the group. The varied program and the wide range of musical possibilities enable the band to transform from a tiny symphony orchestra to a big sounding jazz group.
The unique band sound and musical concept, where playing from composed musical structures is combined with the tasteful implementation of improvisation, produces music that is interesting and accessible for a broad and diverse public.
