Inauguration King Willem-Alexander

Inauguration King Willem-Alexander, ,
12 t/m 2021
Inauguration-concert with Brabants Jazz Orchestra.

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands paid a first official visit to the southern province of North Brabant on 12 June 2013, less than three months after they were crowned. The visit ended with a grand finale in ’s-Hertogenbosch. MESSO, with Artishock events, was commissioned to turn this occasion into a grandiose public event. The Bossche Markt in the city centre was transformed into Hieronymus Bosch' palette which acted as a stage for contemporary culture in Brabant. The king and queen, surrounded by thousands of people, watched a musical spectacle unfold that was orchestrated by Strijbos & Van Rijswijk. Music, dance, and circus were joyously present on the five stages that embodied the cities of the urban network Brabantstad. Trampoline artists tumbled through the air in front of the statue of Brabant's world-famous painter Hieronymus Bosch. All of this was accompanied by Rob van Rijswijk and Jeroen Strijbos' compositions which played by the Brabant Jazz Orchestra acting as 21st century heralds. The choreography was by Pia Meuthen. The show closed with the Dutch singer/songwriter Guus Meeuwis as everyone joined in with his hit song Brabant.
