At the request of many and under the name of “Senior Pride” this time, the special musical revue returns on the canal near the theater-restaurant Paleis van de Weemoed. This revue at Amsterdam Gay Pride is the annual tribute to a special group (but not limited to): Pink Seniors.
At the quay, which will become the enchanting décor for this evening, people can visit the “Bienvenue Festival,” and DJ Ronnie Retro will play favorite tunes from all quarters of the world.
Pianist and composer George Beentjes will open the evening with his enchanting piano playing, and the presenters of the “World of LUDIQUE!” will introduce varied artists, such as Marlene XL, Janey Jacké, soprano Wiebke Göetjes, countertenor Willem Aless, tenor René Martijn, and pianist Ulrich Welsch.
Victoria False, accompanied by accordion player Klaas Strijder, will bring a loving serenade. During the evening, Mr. and Mrs. Senior Pride 2015 will also be honored. The girl’s group BB Bootleg will revive the swinging 1930s, and sailors will smoothen the floor with their Sailor Tap Dance and pave the way for Liesbeth List in Concert.
The evening will come to a close in style with the “Carnaval de Travestie,” in which all artists will reappear on stage in unison. Being together, isn’t that what we all want?
