On March 9, Jacob ter Veldhuis will receive the Gouden Viooltje Prize, which is given to musicians with exceptional talent from North Holland.

The Noord Nederlands Orkest, conducted by Antony Hermus, combines French impressionist masters Roussel, Poulenc, and Debussy, with works by the Groningen-native JacobTV (aka Jacob ter Veldhuis) on March 9 at the Oosterport in Groningen and on March 10 at Tivoli Vredenberg in Utrecht.

NNO has asked Ter Veldhuis to compose an orchestral work on the occasion of his 65th birthday, thus giving life to his Adagio for orchestra. This piece will have its world premiere in Groningen, along with a performance of his La Lucerna del Mondo. Both performances will be live on Dutch Public Radio 4.
