Splendor Toekomstorkest

Create and play new music! Orchestra for children from 6 to 13

The Splendor Orchestra of the Future plays once again!
As in the past, during the May school vacation (Monday April 29 and Tuesday April 30) we have organized a project for school children who sing or play an instrument, and who want to come create their own new music.
The project is open to children aged 6 to 13, who have had music lessons (instrumental or vocal) for a year or longer.
We will work from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on both days, with a concert at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday. After lunch (provided by us) we always take the whole group outside for a breath of fresh air.

This time our inspiration will be guided by this theme:

Everything topsy-turvy
Does everything go as it should, or do you like to stir things up?
Where and what is your instrument if you play it upside down, or just as it should be?
We’d love to investigate that with you during our two-day project Orchestra of the Future (“Toekomstorkest”) in Splendor Amsterdam.
During this Orchestra of the Future there will be surprises, everything will be mixed up.
Who is who and who plays or does what?
We will think up new music to fit this theme. Or doesn’t fit at all!

The Splendor Orchestra of the Future welcomes all instruments (but a maximum of 3 pianists) and children who sing. Extra instruments are available, including electronic music equipment like a loop station. There are 3 teachers: Emma Rekers, Rogier Hornman and Iris Oltheten. We operate in a workshop-type atmosphere and always take the ideas and initiatives of the children into account. Splendor also provides enough space to work in smaller groups.
