ABOUT US

    

In VONK four musicians and a composer are working together on new productions. The ensemble has a unique sound, due to the original combination of musicians: a soprano, a saxophone player, a clarinetist and a percussionist. VONK is commissioning to other composers. Researching innovative music theatre concepts leads to collaborations with theatre directors, choreographers and scenographers.

Soprano Rianne Wilbers was a soloist in the opera ‘La vie et mort d’Erard’  by Robin de Raaff with the Doelen Ensemble at ‘Rotterdamse Operadagen’. She performed with Blindman! compositions by Louis Andriessen at Concertgebouw Brugge.
