Martin Grubinger in the jury and on the festival stage of TROMP 2018

The biennial competition and festival in Eindhoven opens this year with a special percussion spectacle Friday 9 November. The Austrian percussionist Martin Grubinger is one of the prominent guests of this edition, both in the professional jury of the competition and on the festival stage in an unique collaboration with TROMP 2014 winner Dominique Vleeshouwers and Harmonie St. Michaël van Thorn. 

The Austrian percussionist Martin Grubinger is a true phenomenon. He turns his hand just as easily to a Gregorian repertoire as a grand show in the Eurovision Song Contest or a marathon concert in which he spends over four hours moving between 200 instruments. In the Opening Night of the TROMP festival he shares the stage with a rising star from The Netherlands: as a winner of the jury-, audience and press prize of the TROMP competition in 2014, Dominique Vleeshouwers international career has taken off. Together with Harmonie St. Michaël van Thorn, a wind orchestra of international top-class, the opening of TROMP 2018 promises to be an unique and festive percussion spectacle.
