Ties  Mellema  


At the age of eight Ties Mellema decided he wanted to play the saxophone. His father played Charlie Parker to him and he liked the sound; furthermore the saxophone would help his asthma. It was the right choice, the instrument’s versatility suits Ties well. Many years on he works as a solo artist, a chamber musician and a teacher. In 2010 he received the Netherlands Music Prize from the Dutch Performing Arts Fund, a highly prestigious recognition of his work so far.
