New project: The French Chanson !! This is the second project in a series of five projects of seven weeks each, with each project working on a number of songs in a certain style or with a specific theme. At the end of the project there is a short presentation in the foyer of the Koorenhuis.
We immerse ourselves for 7 weeks in the beautiful French language with beautiful chansons and poetic texts.

The repertoire for the coming season will be announced in August.

A pleasant atmosphere is important for a choir. Working on pieces for choirs that fit the level of the choir members is an important element within that atmosphere.
The maximum number of participants is 16. We do not shy away from challenges, the boundaries of our abilities are often further away than we think.
Vocal training and the creation of a good choral sound are fixed elements of every rehearsal.

After just rounding off the fourth season of the Spring Voices, there is already a lot of interest in organising a fifth edition of the spring project "Spring Voices".
"Spring Voices" means singing towards a sunny spring and summer with a broad genre of music: pop, world, a little bit of jazz and some solid soul music. Obviously attention will also be paid to vocal training and choral sound.
We will conclude the project with two smashing performances.
We have a limited number of places, a maximum of 25, so do not wait to long before registering.
The costs are € 265,- (incl. 6% VAT) for a course of 22 weeks and two performances. Excluding €20,- for accompaniment by our pianist.
Further information can be obtained by sending an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope to see you at the 5th edition of the Spring Voices!
Please note: the minimum age for participation is 18 years.
Start of the rehearsals on the 26th of September 2018.
"De Swingende Kerstbubbels" is a choir of Vokaal Totaal. The choir consists of about 20 enthusiastic members, including members of Pepperoni and Madame Jeanette and also six ex-members of Pepperoni, who can not leave singing anyway.
Last year there were performances in the "Passage" in The Hague and during the King Winter Festival. There were also visits to different nursing homes. Where, when and how many times this year will be sung, remains to be seen, but we know for sure that "De Swingende Kerstbubbels" will be seen and heard a lot again.
The conductor is Annemarie Willems. The choir is accompanied on the piano by Mariano Boglioli.
The membership fee is € 70,- per quarter.

The lives of women around fifty…
It is better to book Vrouw & Co. Then you get a glimpse into the cheerful, comical, but also emotional experiences of ladies of a certain age.
Vrouw & Co is a vocal group from Zoetermeer and sings about life, a capella, under the professional direction of conductor Annemarie Willems.
Vrouw & Co sings in Dutch with strong, recognizable texts by Anja Verhaar. In addition to listening, there is a lot to see. In short: a varied program.
When you sing in a choir or a band and you feel you have reached the limits of your voice, it is probably time to take singing lessons. During these lessons we will address breahting techniques, vocal training and repertoire. Finding your real voice is the starting point. You're most welcome to bring your own repertoire, but it is not necessary.
People that speak a lot, like teachers and lecturers, sportstrainers, speakers and the like, could benefit a lot from breathing training. A hoarse, tired, voice is often resolved by a better breathing technique.
In addition to workshops for companies and organisations, one could also think of:
The repertoire is quite broad: ranging from South-African songs to, for example, a simple two-part song from Abba. You can choose for à cappella, but piano accompaniment is also possible.
