Spring Festival Student Newsroom

All news

April 6th 2018

For this year’s Spring Festival, a group of students will report from behind the scenes. You can follow them through blogs, vlogs and Instagram posts from 9th till 13th April.


Composition student Patrick Ellis has been writing his ‘count-down blogs’ on the Spring Festival website. He provides valuable insights into some of the festival’s mysteries.


Celia Swart, Julian Maple-Oliviera, Izak de Dreu and Kasper de Oude are vlogging: they make video’s in which they explain certain pieces or interview composers (students, as well as teachers) on their work.

They have their own Youtube-channel, but their work will also be published on the festival’s website.


During the festival we’ll have three reporters taking over the Instagram account of the Royal Conservatoire. Lisalotte Gerards, Thomas van Dun and Celia Swart will show you backstage during rehearsals and concerts.

Follow the Royal Conservatoire on Instagram to stay in the loop!
