About the event
At Goodmesh, one of our core missions is to create opportunities for artists to express themselves through their art and share a deep and meaningful connection with their audiences. It is for this reason that we’re continuing with our “Up and Forward” series of concerts with today’s brightest and promising musicians from the Netherlands.
This time, we are featuring a brilliant young guitarist Sijbrand Loot, who will treat us with an hour long solo performance, full of stories and virtuosity.
A recent winner of the Maarten Oomes prize for best classical guitarist at the Dutch National Prinses Christina Concours, Sijbrand Loot started playing the guitar with Rob Zwart at the age of 7. After an entrance exam at the Conservatory of Amsterdam, he took lessons with Noortje Vredeveld. During this time, he also started taking courses for electrical guitar with Robert Swijgman, at the music school Fluxus located in Zaandam, where he mainly focussed on jazz and blues. He got accepted into the talent class of Fluxus, resulting in many chances to perform music on his guitar, like on talent evenings, school performances, and the Jan Pasveer competition. In this competition, Loot won several prizes, including winning the 1st prize for classical and electrical guitar in 2018 and 2019, 2nd prize together with a violinist Lucy Boeren in the online competition in 2021, and the 1st prize for classical guitar and 2nd for electrical guitar in 2022. With much joy, he has been following lessons with Izhar Elias at the Sweelinck Academy in Amsterdam for the past two years. He hopes to start his bachelor in Amsterdam at the end of summer 2023, after graduating with his pre-university education diploma.
