Theo Tromp founded the TROMP Biennale in 1970 because he believed young musicians were not given enough opportunities to present and develop their talents. More than fifty years later, the competition has grown into the only one in the world for solo percussion: a particular instrument group that demands and receives more and more attention.
From 15(!) countries, the best young percussionists come to Eindhoven to show their percussion skills. The Opening Night on Saturday, 12 November, promises a spectacular show with the band Jungle by Night and the 2020 winner Agostinho Sequeira. Tickets for the festival are available at tromppercussion.com.
