PROJECTS SEASON 2018/2019
Next season, the Kamerorkest van het Noorden is making a step further. The orchestra will be involved in special collaborations, bigger projects and will also pursue bigger challenges with its own productions.
Kamerorkest van het Noorden with the Cuarteto Quiroga
On the 16th of September 2018, the KvN will take part in the opening of the concert series by the Groningse Muziekvereniging at the Kleine Zaal of the Oosterpoort in Groningen. For this occasion we will be working and performing with the great string quartet Cuarteto Quiroga, with its members leading every section of the Kamerorkest van het Noorden.
The program will combine string quartet pieces arranged for string orchestra (Kurtag and Shostakovich), with the Serenade for Strings by Tchaikovsky.
Open rehearsal and presentation available for the Friends of the Kamerorkest van het Noorden
Scratch Concert with Mozart Requiem – Oosterpoort
In June 1st 2019, the Kamerorkest van het Noorden will participate in the Scratch Concert organized by the Oosterpoort in Groningen. The orchestra will be enlarged with some extra strings and winds in order to perform Mozart’s Requiem with hundreds of singers that will join us on stage.
“Genesis: a new beginning”
This project proposes a collaboration between Guus Kuijer (writer), Tatiana Koleva (marimba), Eduardo Canto Arce (violin) and the Kamerorkest van het Noorden. This collaboration aims to create a unique audio-visual performance that takes the audience through a synesthetic experience.
The performance combines music and literature, that interact with each other, with a flexible and changing setting on stage. This combination of languages is understood as a continuous and theatrical line. On stage, the lighting creates brightness and darkness, the music leads to text and vice versa, and altogether creates a unity directed to the audience’s sensorial perception.
This challenging project has already been supported already by eight venues and festivals in order to make its production possible. Amsterdam, Utrecht, Den Haag and Nijmegen are among the different cities that the project will visit if the fundraising is successful.
