I can look back on a wonderful summer which started off with two performances with my new vocal group
the Luxembourg Jazz Voices. It was an
exciting and new experience for me to be leading this wonderful group of people and what a joy to have
been given this great opportunity by the INECC. We will continue our rehearsals
mid-September and will be preparing for some new concerts in December. You can follow us here on Facebook!

On Sunday 21st
October (from 10.30 - 16.30) I will be holding a singing
workshop again together with piano player Frank Harrison. The workshop is
for 6 - 8 singers and the idea is that you prepare a jazz or bossa nova song at
home and on this day you will get the opportunity to sing your song with Frank
as your accompanist and work on it. You could see it as a kind of masterclass in
which we will also learn a lot from listening to each other. If you're interested
in attending this workshop or if you have more questions, don't hesitate to contact
The fee for the workshop is 80 €. Whereabout: at Camille Kerger's house in

update of the things I've been working on and tell you about an upcoming concert and workshop in June.
Luxembourg Jazz Voices
I've been pretty busy the last couple of months with setting up a new vocal group for the INECC Luxembourg which has been really
exciting. I found 14 wonderful singers and we started rehearsing mid-april. We're working very hard on our songs as we
will already have two performances together with the Luxembourg Little Big Band on 13th July in Mamer and 21st July at
the Blues & Jazz Rallye in town. We will bring a mix of jazz, samba, groove and bossa nova. So exciting!! Please
come and support us if you're around :-)
I started giving singing lessons at my home in Sandweiler and I'm really enjoying it whether it's doing breathing
and vocal exercises with beginners or working with more experienced singers on their songs. If you're interested in
having singing lessons yourself or if you know anyone who is looking for a teacher please don't hesitate to contact
me for an introduction lesson. Here on my Facebook Page you can find some more information.

Sophia's Garden Concert
This coming Saturday 13th May I have the honour and pleasure to be singing at a charity event organised by 10 year old Sophia Jansen. A
little girl with a mission! 3 Years ago she started organizing garden concerts to raise money for a great cause in Afghanistan, a circus school for children where they
can experience some happiness again and just have fun. And learn a lot of things along the way! Just as last year the garden concert will be taking place in the
beautiful garden of the residence of the Dutch Ambassador in Weimershof from 14.00 - 18.00. To get more information about this concert and to support Sophia's mission

singer-songwriter Josh Oudendijk, percussionist Eric Dürrer with Juan Carlos Gonzalez from Cuba and Duo des Ailes.
On 1st June I will be singing at the Cube
521 in Marnach with the Luxembourg Little Big Band. They have a new program insprired by the Cool Jazz Era of the 1950's with music from Miles Davis, Gerry
Mulligan and Gil Evans. Quite exciting to be singing with them at this great venue.
On Saturday 3rd June at 11.00 I will be playing with my band Magenta Hill at the multi-culti festival in Differdange.
It's a fun outdoor festival in the middle of Differdange town at the Place du Marché with lots of food stands from many different
countries. We will be playing a mix of some groovy, funky and jazzy tunes.
And last but not least: with my trio I'm working on a new album and I feel so blessed to be able to work with these two amazing musicians: piano player Frank Harrison
and bass player Davide Petrocca. It was just wonderful to be recording with them and we've now finished mixing the tunes and we decided which ones we would like to
have on the album. We recorded some swing tunes, some ballads, an original song, a beautiful italian love song, a swedish waltz and a composition from a luxembourgish
composer. I can't wait to be sharing these new songs with you and I will definitely keep you up to date about a release date. For your agenda: on Sunday morning 8th
