NSK – Dinerconcerten

Artistiek leider

I was involved in this project as artistic director.

The National Student Chamber Choir of the Netherlands is a project choir consisting of 36 members studying at a university or college. These members are selected every year through auditions. In an intensive rehearsal period of three weekends and a week, they work towards mastering an ambitious modern classical program. Their concert tour of 10 concerts in all big student cities ends traditionally in Amsterdam at the Concertgebouw.

In November 2015 the NSK dinner concerts took place for the first time. Evenings on which music and food uniquely came together. The audience could enjoy a 3- or 5-course organic menu served by NSK’s former participants. In between, they brought an contemporary classical program about food.

For this project, NSK worked with Youth Food MovementOverVers , Natuur en Milieufederatie Utrecht. , Gijs Kuneman, Kevin McMulkin, Zus&Kok and Jansstraat33.
