IMMIX VOCAL ENSEMBLE is a new collective of nine young artists: singers, writers, theatre makers, composers and conductors, who create novel ensemble singing performances with honest storytelling, putting the choral experience centre stage. Starting out with the help and guidance of Netherlands Chamber Choir, the troupe found each other in the midst of the global pandemic as participants of NKK NXT 20/21. During this talent development program, we managed to create a hybrid theatrical ensemble singing performance that was well received by both audience and critics. Using story as the backbone of our performance, we look across genres, embrace cooperation and experiment with performance practices.

BLOOM - A Sequence of Gatherings

“How does togetherness feel for you?”

 

NKK NXT 20/21 (Immix), the fourth edition of the talent development program of the Netherlands Chamber Choir, explores the meaning of togetherness in their performance BLOOM – a Sequence of Gatherings. Conceptualized and developed in a world in lock-down, full of online meetings, where physical meetings are at a premium, the performance is a musical inquiry into this new art of gathering. 

 

How do we come together when we are physically apart? NKK NXT 20/21 – Immix (to blend, or to mix) designed a performance that will be breaking boundaries between personal presence and digital distance, in a search for the future of choral music. In the Paardenkathedraal in Utrecht the singers construct and deconstruct language, sound and different realities, blending the digital world with the physical space and mirroring a real life on the screen.

BLOOM - A Sequence of Gatherings is now available for on-demand streaming online!

“Young choir talent proves: Live and online can go very well together” (★★★★ – NRC)

In a time where travelling has been difficult, we invite you to experience Appalachia.

PARNASSOS

Hear hear!

Come and listen to music and poetry

from heretofore with Parnassus.

We will share stories of folly, fire,

life and death!

Parnassos is the duo formed by Julie Hasfjord (soprano) and Magnus Wendel (lute), a result of the two musicians and friends' shared interest and fascination for the beautiful songs and the often amazing stories connected to them from 1600's England and Spain.  Having known each other for many years already, they finally had the time and opportunity to give concerts together and make their first recordings in Trondheim, Norway in 2020.

While they keep delving into this endless world of captivating songs and stories, they are looking forward to planning further performances and projects.
