BIM BAN BENNINK

A FREE interactive concert for children (aged 6-11)

FRI 3 NOV | THE MAC | DOORS 1PM / FREE BOOK HERE


The Netherlands based ICP Orchestra (Instant Composers Pool) celebrate their 50th anniversary with a show specifically developed for audiences aged 6-11 years old.

Their new children’s show “Bim Bam Bennink” was debuted in 2016 at Amsterdam’s famous jazz venue ‘Bimhuis’ and illustrates perfectly to young audiences how exciting and fun instant composition (aka improvisation) can be.

This show is part-performance, part-workshop, and part-adventure where young maestri may even have an opportunity to join in on the fun and be part of the ICP Orchestra – suitable for all musical abilities!

Led by the energetic and playful drummer Mr Han Bennink, who co-founded the ICP in 1967 (!) and celebrated his 75th birthday this year, this is a unique chance to see and hear this one of a kind ensemble in Belfast.

ICP’s approach to performances aimed at younger audiences uncovers the instant composer in all of us!
