In February we recorded the new composition 'Upstream' by Lise Morrison. She wrote this new work for the first concert 'Ear for each other' in the concert series 'Aardlek: urgent matters'. Unfortunately, this concert could not continue due to the lockdown, but we are now proud to present the online premiere with video by Okke van Breemen.
We are proud to share that Fonds Podiumkunsten has honored two applications for composition commissions from Orkest De Ereprijs! New works by Oğuz Büyükberber and Ned McGowan will premiere in the autumn of 2021.
Each of them will be awarded a commission.
- Orkest De Ereprijs commission:
- St. Frank van der Wal Fonds commission:
- RKST21 commission:
That was it. Just over 40 years and all with great pleasure. It is still a great pleasure, but a number of incidentals prompted the passing of the baton. With many thanks to all members and ex-members of de ereprijs, because without their constant energy and commitment it would never have been possible. Naturally, this also applies to the various board members, who have helped to lay and maintain the foundation for all activities. Not to forget in this context the various politicians, both locally and especially regionally and the associated authorities.
