The Centre for Jazz and Popular Music will present the Artvark Saxophone Quartet from Netherlands on March 30.

Artvark is a unique jazz saxophone quartet made up of Rolf Delfos (alto sax), Bart Wirtz (alto sax), Mete Erker (tenor sax) and Peter Broekhuizen (baritone sax). They have been together for over a decade. The quartet mixes their different backgrounds to form their creative and original sound.

Artvark is famous for their innovative original compositions, strong individual soloists and the adventurous groove of four saxophones.

Every year they tour clubs and international festivals, playing their most recent repertoire. In addition to concerts, Artvark is also involved in education: 'Artvark Moves!' is their latest educational programme in which they offer unique master classes and workshops for schools, universities and organisations in transition.
