Saxophonist – Composer – Arranger – Educator

"Jeroen Vanbever is truly a 21st century musician; a virtuosic saxophonist that has a deep understanding of a myriad of musical styles and electronics, an improviser, a composer and arranger, and someone with a creative mind and imagination. These experiences and knowledge are shaping a personal musical voice. It's an exciting journey and one that I will be following closely!"

– Andy Scott, Saxophonist, Composer & Educator,
Member of the Apollo Saxophone Quartet,
Saxophone Professor at Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester

"I worked with Jeroen Vanbever recently and found him to be a talented instrumentalist, a chamber musician who listens well, and a young artist with innovative programming ideas. He is a dedicated, thoughtful musician who works very hard at his craft, and collaborates very effectively with other musicians. A young artist to watch, I wish him every success in his career."

– Kyle Horch, Saxophone Professor, Royal College of Music, London

"Toutes mes félicitations, monsieur Jeroen Vanbever pour votre interprétatie du Concerto de mon Père, Henri Tomasi!"

– Claude Tomasi

"Jeroen Vanbever, who premiered my composition “Ella's Blues” is a great, dedicated performer with a natural and open-minded approach to classical, jazz and crossover — his all-round musicianship is no doubt his distinctive strength!”

– Jeroen D’hoe, composer

"Among his virtues, I would highlight his flexibility and artistic sensitivity, combined with a very high technical knowledge of the instrument. As I have seen him on several occasions, playing both classical and contemporary music, as well as a slightly more alternative, a bit jazzy, repertoire and even interpreting his own compositions with saxophone and electronics, thus demonstrating his commitment to the present time and his concern to seek new forms of expression. All this together with a great capacity of work, always demonstrating a perfect attitude, make Jeroen an excellent professional of whom I have no doubts about his positive and interesting proposals to the world of the saxophone of the future."
