International students

Have you always wanted to perform a grand classical composition? This is your chance! On May 4th, 2018, the student association for Musicology students at UU, Hucbald, will organise a production of Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem. May 4th is National Remembrance Day in the Netherlands, so it is the perfect date to perform a requiem, a mass for the dead. The performance of the Requiem is a unique opportunity for you to join a large-scale production of a classical piece. You can join as a member of the choir or the orchestra. You can sign up via the forms linked below.

Who?The Remembrance Day concert is for everyone who is interested in performing Fauré’s Requiem, whether in the choir or the orchestra. You don’t even need to have experience to join our choir! This project is organised by and for students, so if you’re a student you’re more than welcome! However, anyone with an interest in the project is invited to join us.

 

Why?
As we’ve mentioned before, the Remembrance Day concert is a unique opportunity to join a large-scale performance. It will grant you the opportunity to develop your musical skills under careful guidance of a skilled conductor and (fellow) Musicology students. And of course, as the Dutch say, it’s just very gezellig!

When & where?
The choir rehearsals will take place on almost every Wednesday from January 31st, from 5.15 PM to 7 PM). An exact rehearsal schedule can be found at the bottom of this page.

The rehearsals for the orchestra will take place on four Tuesdays at the end of March/the beginning of April: March 20th, March 27th, April 3rd and April 10th, from 5.15 PM to 7 PM. An exact rehearsal schedule can be found at the bottom of this page.

The choir and orchestra will have three joint rehearsals: Sunday April 29th, Thursday May 3rd and Friday May 4th (the day of the performance).

The performance of the Requiem will take place on May 4th, 2018, in the Jacobikerk in Utrecht.

Interested?
International students can send an email to koorco@hucbald.nl to join the project. Make sure to mention in what voice range (soprano, alto, tenor or bass) you sing or what instrument you play.
