VOXearlyMUS enhances connections

2 March 2018

It may be spring break, but this week the Royal Conservatoire provides the stage for the VOXearlyMUS project. Students and teachers from eight different European schools are rehearsing and sharing thoughts in preparation for Sunday’s concert.

This Erasmus+ project is an initiative of the National University of Music in Bucharest. Singers and continuo-players from Rumania, Austria, Belgium, and Italy, along with students from The Hague attend lectures, workshops, and practical repertoire rehearsals this week. Two concerts are planned fort hem, the next of which will be held on Sunday 4th March at 11:00am in the Kees van Baren-zaal.

The week’s theme is ‘Contemporearly Music – Embracing the New’ – a combination of contemporary and early repertoire. The two composers, whose works will be performed this Sunday, were present during the workshop week to giude the singers through their pieces. Byzantine music will have a special place in the programme too, as the students were coached by a Byzantine specialist from Bucharest.

Enhancing connections between schools, nationalities and musical genres. What better way to start your Sunday?
