Inspiring choral projects: Professionals and amateurs

Projects that bring together professional choirs and passionate amateur singers on stage, encourage contemporary composers to create suitable repertoire, settings that invite those who normally can’t come to a concert house and more!

A selection:

Zingen doe je samen – Nederlands Kamerkoor
NKK gives tailor-made masterclasses preceding a concert in the neighbourhood of the amateur choir. The choir is invited to attend the dress rehearsal and has the chance to perform as supporting act to the Nederlands Kamerkoor. The members of the amateur choir get free and discount tickets. In two years, more than 1000 amateur singers participated, resulting in a 13% increase in audience numbers for these regional concerts.


Visioni ed Estasi – Wim Hendrickx (commissioned piece for Tenso Days Mechelen 2015)
Example of a new piece written especially for three professional choirs and seven amateur choirs from the Mechelen region.


Space Odyssey – musicatreize
A choral project that brings together amateurs and professionals with an extraordinary placement of the audience: at the heart of the acoustic set up. Five pieces have been commissioned for the project.


Frisch komponiert – Rupert Huber/ Deutscher Chorverband/ SWR Vocal Ensemble
Project to inspire composers to write contemporary music for amateur choirs.


Workshop activities for the community – accentus


Concerts in hospitals – ensemble aedes
