Happy New Year!

We hope you have had a great end of the year and are ready for a new year filled with improvisation!
We have been very busy, trying to organise our next classical music session.

Our next session will be the last in a series made possible by the generous support of Fonds1818, Fonds Cultuurparticipatie and Cultuurschakel. We are very grateful to these funds for helping us make our dream come true.

Will you come celebrate with us?

We invited a special guest, improvisation teacher and specialist Robijn Tilanus. Beside publishing several insightful books, she has a busy career improvising in concerts and teaching workshops. We can’t wait to play with her, and to see her teach you! 

In this session we are going to focus on different types of dances. Most dance music over the past few centuries has had at least some element of improvisation.
As always, there is a beginner-level workshop (with Robijn), which you can prepare a bit for here.

26 January - Koorenhuis
14:00-15:30 Workshop
16:00-17:00 Session / Concert with Robijn Tilanus and The Scroll Ensemble

Who is our next guest, Robijn Tilanus?

Robijn has been all over the world, improvising concerts, teaching wonderfully inclusive and inspiring workshops and through her books, encompassing the many-fold aspects of improvisation.
She says: "It’s my passion to make you experience how wonderful it is to make music. How great it is to improvise. I love to make you feel the joy of following your musical imagination. The freedom of just ‘letting things go’, and expressing your feelings. It’s my passion to make you feel the joy of making music from your heart."

For the more advanced improviser, this time, we are also going to do a slightly more advanced improvisation with you. We will use the Folia as a basis for a group improvisation. Curious what it is? We put together a small post on how to improvise on the Folia. The post is currently only available in Dutch, but coming up soon in English.

In January we are also joining Opera2Day in a fascinating production as taster for their show Dangerous Liasons. Our taster combines a full dinner, music by Vivaldi, improvisations on food and many other things and an actor and packages it in a whirlwind dinner in the Utrecht Schouwburg. Based on a novel in letters, we will talk about love and work with three singers of the cast of the main opera.

Unfortunately, our show has already sold out...
