Mark van Schaick

general manager @ inJazz

As the genre manager classical, jazz, world at Buma Cultuur, it is my job to promote those composers who are registered at BumaStemra. I do this by organizing showcase and industry events like inJazz and New Music Conference with my team, and by connecting people all year round, both nationally and internationally. My background is in music journalism (OOR, Buma magazine, Gitarist, Slagwerkkrant, Interface), and I have been interviewing, moderating, and presenting at various music conferences for more than 25 years.

  • There are two reasons for me to attend jazzahead!: first it is an honour and a privilege to help set up valuable international connections between musicians and various music industry players at jazzahead!, and in doing so create a stronger network for the Dutch jazz world. Secondly, I am happy to raise awareness among the jazzahead! delegates of everything that inJazz and jazz from the Netherlands has to offer!
