The jazz department of the Music School of Amsterdam produces a great amount of young talents every year. They’ll put their best foot forward during the annual JazzMarathon at the BIMHUIS, featuring several bands and ensembles. The Peter Guidi JazzMarathon was named after the passionate founder of the jazz department of the Music School of Amsterdam, tutor and band leader Peter Guidi, who passed away in 2018. ‘Peter Guidi was the godfather of the Amsterdams jazz scene’ (de Volkskrant).
