Netherlands Chamber Choir

The Netherlands Chamber Choir is a unique ensemble, founded in 1937 by Felix de Nobel and today is one of Europe’s few autonomous full-time chamber choirs. Financial support from the Dutch government enables the 24 vocal soloists to devote the majority of their time to the performance of a cappella repertoire. Additionally the choir also regularly joins forces with renowned instrumental ensembles, such as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Orchestra of the 18th Century, the Schönberg Ensemble, the Amsterdam Sinfonietta and the Combattimento Consort.

In recent years the choir has built a considerable reputation at home as well as abroad. In 2000 the choir performed in New York’s Carnegie Hall and Vienna’s Musikverein with Reinbert de Leeuw and the Schönberg Ensemble, and the ensemble traveled to Japan (1998) and to Spain (2000) with the Orchestra of the 18th Century and its conductor Frans Brüggen.

The Netherlands Chamber Choir’s appearances in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw during the 2003-2004 season included performances of Haydn’s Die Schöpfung (with the Radio Chamber Orchestra conducted by Philippe Herreweghe), the Serenade to Music by Vaughan Williams).
