Meesters&Gezellen is a series of concerts by young professional singers (Gezellen) and experienced colleagues (Meesters). Twenty Gezellen and four Meesters from Det Norske Solistkor will prepare a challenging programme under the musical direction of Yuval Weinberg. They will perform seven concerts throughout the Netherlands.

The project’s goal is to offer young singers experience in ensemble singing at a high level, in addition to their solo-singing education. Participants will become acquainted with Norwegian repertoire, the Norwegian sound, and the Dutch way of working together.

The repertoire

The repertoire contains substantial solo parts, to be performed by the Gezellen.

We are looking for:

Young professional singers, with well-developed solo voices.

We offer:

• Intensive preparation with singing coach Geert Berghs and singers of Det Norske Solistkor.
• Rehearsals and concerts conducted by Yuval Weinberg.
• Reimbursement of costs.
• Tea, coffee and (simple) meals during rehearsals and before concerts.

Do you want to participate?

Call for singers is open now. Deadline is 25 October 2023 at 24:00.
