Ledenconcert Marieke de Bruijn

A behind-the-scenes look at two projects in the making

'In this concert I will talk about two projects that I am currently working on. I am working on a music theater performance about Mariken van Nieumeghen, the famous main character in the Mirakelspel from 1500, for which I am also writing music. And I'm doing research on Mili Herman, a Hungarian violinist who came to the Netherlands in 1910 and was frequently portrayed by artists such as Sluiter and Toorop. What music would she have played? How did her life go on? They are both women who chose their own path. What I'm going to show in this concert is work in progress, I'll play pieces that fit the stories, and I'll lard this with text and images. I would like to involve you, our audience, in the creative process that I am now involved in. I would like to put my doubts and considerations about decisions that need to be made, to you.'

Member concert
Splendor can only be the independent and free hub that it is, thanks to the members who support us. We pay them back with our specialty: music. Every year, all Splendor musicians play one concert that's free for this crucial group to whom Splendor owes its everyday existence. Combined with many other events, this means that our members have free entrance to about 80 concerts a year for €9,99 p/m (and €4,99 p/m for minima and students!) – and receive a discount for all other concerts. Pretty good deal, right?

The members enable Splendor to remain independent, which is the only way to secure real freedom in programming, experimentation, risk-taking and the promotion of young, upcoming artists. If you can think of another place without a central programming, where last-minute concerts can be planned any moment, where there is no backstage and artists and audience are constantly mingling and hanging out at the bar, where mysterious creative outbursts can be presented that are often labeled 'too risky' elsewhere, and that still guarantees high quality by unleashing the best of The Netherlands' music scene in this creative playground – you get a free membership!
