Jana De Troyer
Thrilled by contemporary sounds, Jana De Troyer (°1994) moves – whether or not accompanied by her saxophones – between the most diverse genres of the 20th and 21st century. She was already part of various small and big ensembles and played (contemporary) classical, free improvisation, pop, rock, electronic, orchestral, chamber, world, wind band and big band music.
As a performer, composer, conductor and journalist she has already been on many Belgian and German media, and on stages throughout Europe and Asia.
Jana studied saxophone in Lübeck (DE; Prof. Rico Gubler), Munich (DE; Koryun Asatryan) and Ghent (BE; Koen Maas, Raf Minten, Rik Vaneyghen). She received grants from Live Music Now Hamburg and MusikERkennen. In 2017 she was Artist in Residence in Künstlerstadt Kalbe.
