Jeroen Vanbever is a young, driven, Belgian saxophonist. After completing his classical saxophone studies at LUCA School of Arts in Leuven, he studied jazz saxophone at the same institution and at KASK Conservatory of Ghent. As a freelance saxophonist, he has been invited several times to play with Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen and Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra. With the latter he played, inter alia, at the Festival Musiq’3 and participated on a tour in Germany. By travelling around the world, taking master classes and meeting other musicians and saxophonist, Jeroen was influenced by different musical approaches. He played classical music with orchestra’s, chamber music ensembles, and improvised in folk, (free) jazz as well as in classical settings. In his own projects, he tries to look for interesting cross-overs between classical music, pop/rock, jazz and folk/world music. One of these projects involved composer Jeroen D’hoe and pianist Bart Van Caenegem with whom he collaborated on a cross-over project for the 17th World Saxophone Congress in Strasbroug. His latest projects involve a promising Belgian String Quartet and a solo project with loopstation and live loops. Next to being a top level musician, Jeroen is an equally passioned educator and shares his knowledge and experience as a saxophonist with young and old.
