over Jazz On The Sofa

Stand up for Live Music

Jazz On The Sofa is a Jazz Festival that focuses on high-quality jazz and world music in a chamber music setting (Small ensembles like solo and duo formations). On the first Sunday of November, living rooms in Zeist (around the castle) will be transformed into stages where you experience, together with the artists, pure intimate music.

When music is being made in a living room, music communicates between maker and listener. Very direct. Playing acoustically as much as possible, without the intervention of technical gadgets, reinforces that feeling. That’s why Jazz On The Sofa started. Curious about concerts with added value?

What is more fun for you as a concert visitor that you do not know who you will meet and where you will end up? “Jazz On The Sofa” is an afternoon of surprises. “Jazz On The Sofa” is synonymous for: intimate setting, personal involvement and quality. The organization chooses a combination of (inter) national artists in combination with gorgeous musicians from our region and new talents.

In a Corona era, concerts in living rooms are no longer possible. Hence, the concerts in 2021 will take place in gorgeous historic locations around te castle of Zeist.


‘Jazz On The Sofa’ is an initiative of the Lotz Of Music Foundation. Organized by Brenda Hassel-Emmen & Mark Alban Lotz.
