In these times of dramatic cuts in the arts and culture, the Orchestra and I set ourselves the goal of introducing a larger audience to the phenomenon of the “Symphonic Wind Orchestra.” Due to the specific instrumentation, extended with a rhythm section, the orchestra allows standard repertoire to be combined with innovative crossover music. By showing how a traditional orchestra is transformed into a ‘hip’ ensemble, the Inspiration Orchestra is an important ambassador for Dutch wind music. The unique evidence of this is the bonus track “Inspire the Environment”
  • The repertoire of Studium Chorale contains compositions from over five ages
  • The chamber choir did several world premieres of different composers
  • Since 2005, the choir is a professional chamber choir
  • The ensemble has worked with Ed Spanjaard, Steffen Schreyer, Erik Van Nevel and Andrew Parrott
