2017-2018

In search of DRAMA

With rising temperatures come rising emotions. This summer the Kunstorkest performs a dramatic programme. All states and affections of the human psyche will be in a expressed in a number of beautiful overtures. Solist Meike Wijma will sing some highly charged arias, which will inspire some improvised theater by members of theatersportgroup Aangenaam Verrast. From moving baroque music of Händel and Purcell to the passion of Gluck and the fiery music of Kraus, the sparks and tears will fly.

Friday June 8th, 20.30 Academiegebouw, Domplein 29

Sunday June 10th, 15.15 UCK, Domplein 4



England, The Enchanted Island

On 2 and 3 March we played the Overture from Ode for St. Cecilia’s Day by Handel, the Suite from The Fairy Queen by Purcell and parts from Île Enchantée by Lully. The concerts took place in the Zuiderkapel in Bilthoven and the Singelkerk in Utrecht, en were made possible by U-fonds and Stichting Carel Nengermans Fonds.



Winter Concert

At the start of the winter the Kunstorkest is showing off its own soloist talent. We will be playing the energetic concerto for two oboes Opus 9 No. 6 in G major by Albinoni, and the intense La Follia by Vivaldi. Last but not least is the piano concerto in D major by Haydn, ending in a frantic rondo of Balkan dances.
