Heart for the art

As a performing artist I am a soloist as well as an ensemble singer.

I am in love with Early Music. My voice is, too.

I am happy singing that and other repertoire with other singers and instrumentalists with various groups and performers on different stages, festivals and churches.

Performer & creator

I am happy to join groups for passionate musicmaking of any kind. Besides participating in various productions I create programs myself.

Teacher and “Markiezin van Drenthe”

I am a private voice teacher at my own ZANGATELIER.

Before that I used to teach at Scala Centrum voor de Kunsten (Meppel and Hoogeveen).

I work as voice coach with various choirs and vocal ensembles and teach voice to conductors during their training.

In order to offer more than just voice lessons, I founded the “MARKIEZIN VAN DRENTHE”. This foundation organizes masterclasses, workshops and other cultural activities to offer activities to people who perform between professional and amateur level of music making. This way I can invite teachers and performers who I believe have something special to offer in music to come here and teach that not only to my students but anybody else who might be interested.

Guest teachers in the past were among others Emma Kirkby and Jill Feldman.
