Save the date

Unfortunately, for various safety reasons, in consultation with all those involved, we have had to make the decision to go online again this year. This means that students from all the above-mentioned conservatoriums will attend the Focus Day from their own building.

You will be able to follow this day via Zoom: Meeting ID: 289 218 8886 / Passcode: 890753.

Sven Hoscheit - how the Jan Pustjens Foundation supported my career

Through the support from the Jan Pustjens Foundation, I had the possibility to expand my career on an international level. I am deeply grateful for the help I received  from the JPF. This festival has given me great experiences and has deepened my perception of the professional music scene.

The entire comprehensive reports can be found on our website.

Jan Pustjens

Jan Pustjens was gifted percussionist and a national and international music educator. He was also solo percussionist with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.


Dear friends and interested parties,
We are very happy that we can finally go live again this Sunday with our Jan Pustjens Focus Day at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, and then immediately with a very special edition.

On Sunday 7 February  the JP Focus-Day took place fort he 7th time. The general theme was “improvisation”.
The full cooperation and enthousiasm of the master Alexandre Babel of Eklekto, Geneva Percussion Center, made it a highly succesful event.

In 2018, The Jan Pustjens Foundation visited the TROMP percussion competition to hand out a special prize to further support a young talent.
The prize was given to Elliott Gaston-Ross! We would like to wish him all the best in his promising career and musical journey!

Thanks to the contribution of the Jan Pustjens Foundation, composer Stan Verberkt and percussionist Mervyn Groot were able to enter their residency at Oerol 2017 in full concentration and inspiration.
