IMMIX VOCAL ENSEMBLE

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, IMMIX created a hybrid performance designed for both live and online audiences, which was well received by critics and the public. Using storytelling as the backbone of their performances, they look across genres, embrace cooperation and experiment with performance practices.

DE WILDERNIS

After her much praised show MENS, Wende now develops her new fully Dutch performance De Wildernis. In collaboration with theatre group Oostpool, IMMIX Vocal Ensemble, and an (inter-)national artistic team, Wende explores the wilderness within ourselves and in the outside world. She translates what lives in between our hearts and subconsciousness in a new multidisciplinary show.

BLOOM – A Sequence of Gatherings

BITTER BLOSSOMS

Bitter Blossoms is an exciting new vocal trio based out of The Hague. Phoebe Kirrage, Julie Hasfjord and Viktoria Nikolova combine their skills and knowledge of traditional and classical music to create a unique performance of songs, stories, and tunes. 

 

Bitter Blossoms gather and collect stories and songs that have been passed through generations. Some songs and tunes have been carefully uncovered by the Blossoms through ethnographic research and represent the syncratic connections between text and melody. Others have simply been gifted on an 18th birthday by a fellow folk musician. By weaving these elements together with their own musical arrangements and style, Bitter Blossoms seamlessly entangle musical traditions and stories that would have otherwise not met, in a collection of folklore inspired performances.

 

As an international ensemble, Bitter Blossoms draws on folklore and tradition from their own home countries, Norway, Bulgaria, and England, creating performances akin to the ensemble name itself – simple and beautiful, but with an undertone of a darker nature. Together they love exploring and playing with the beauty, as well as the harsh and occasionally disturbing aspects surfacing from their own cultural heritage.

Performing since 2022, Bitter Blossoms have performed in The United Kingdom and the Netherlands. From cathedrals to jazz clubs to breweries, with a variety of audiences and a number of sold out shows.

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.
