André Heuvelman brings theater to music, and music to theater.
His trumpet is the medium, but his message is greater than that:
I perform therefore I am.
Heuvelman is soloist in the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and a member of the Netherlands Wind Ensemble.
He has performed internationally with a variety of other instrumentalists and orchestras, was featured in the Opera ‘A King, Riding’ by Klaas de Vries, and has, in recent years, initiated a series of productions to direct his creative energy which is as yet completely untamed.
André Heuvelman gives master classes regularly and teaches at Codarts one of Holland’s most modern conservatories; there, he is at constant odds with rules and regulations as well as with the preconceived ideas of many young music students as to what a life in music is all about.
In his view it takes more than just the notes: endless curiosity and a dedication to communication are pre-requisites for a performance career.
