Congratulations Oak Tree, winners of ‘Jong Jazztalent Gent’

The trio  Oak Tree have won the EUR 10,000 first prize in the 2013 ‘Jong Jazztalent Gent’ competition at the Ghent Jazz Festival. Oak Tree, founded in 2008, are Belgian singer Sarah Klenes (she was originally trained and worked professionally as a ballet dancer), Luxembourg cellist Annemie Osborne and Belgian accordeonist Thibaut Dille. The jury (Simon Korteweg – chair – , Giovanni Barcella and Bruno Bollaert) was unanimous in their decision, and wee impressed by the project which Oak Tree had put together to work with composers such as Joachim Badenhorst, Jens Boutery and Michel Massot.
