Future icons of the Argentinia Tango present themselves in the Uilenburgersjoel

The tango department at CODARTS, University of the Arts, is one of the select few institutions in the world where students are educated to become experts in Argentinian tango music. Splendor musician and tango master Santiago Cimadevilla introduces the Bachelor and Master students from this department, who are currently preparing their graduation recitals (final exams) and who can’t wait to perform their music. Today, Splendor becomes their playground, where they can exhibit the many aspects of this Argentinian music in various line-ups, from small ensembles to the full Orquesta Tipica. A unique opportunity to hear these future tango stars in the intimate setting of the Uilenburgersjoel. And, spoiler alert: the teachers will be playing in the big tango orchestra as well!

Member concert
Splendor can only be the independent and free hub that it is, thanks to the members who support us. We pay them back with our specialty: music. Every year, all Splendor musicians play one concert that's free for this crucial group to whom Splendor owes its everyday existence. Combined with many other events, this means that our members have free entrance to about 80 concerts a year for €9,99 p/m (and €4,99 p/m for minima and students!) – and receive a discount for all other concerts. Pretty good deal, right?

The members enable Splendor to remain independent from government subsidies, which is the only way to secure real freedom in programming, experimentation, risk-taking and the promotion of young, upcoming artists. If you can think of another place without a central programming, where last-minute concerts can be planned any moment, where there is no backstage and artists and audience are constantly mingling and hanging out at the bar, where mysterious creative outbursts can be presented that are often labeled 'too risky' elsewhere, and that still guarantees high quality by unleashing the best of The Netherlands' music scene in this creative playground – you get a free membership!
