Today we can announce who will provide the lecture on September 1: The British historian and author Tom Holland! We can announce in addition dat the poet Ramsey Nasr, philosopher Désanne van Brederode and writer Oek de Jong will provide introductions to concerts with original and inspiring words!

Tom Holland won several prizes of importance with several popular historic bestsellers about the antiquity and medieval history. Holland presents the popular BBC radio4-program Making history and has created several television documentaries about very diverse subjects: from religion to dinosaurs. He made a serious but controversial documentary this year about the roots of IS where he had to take great risks by filming on IS territory. With his very rich historic and religious knowledge, Tom Holland will share his unique look on the psalms with the audience and connect them in an inimitable way with 21st-century present-day societal issues.

For more information go to choirs & speakers.

Yesterday the Lincoln Center (New York City) announced that 150 Psalms is one of the highlights of the programme of the prestigious White Light Festival. 150 Psalms will premiere during the Early Music Festival in Utrecht and, next to New York, it will be presented internationally as well during the Klarafestival in Brussels March 2018.

Director Tido Visser of the Nederlands Kamerkoor on the announcement of the Lincoln Center: “It is wonderful to be able to take such a prominent place in this groundbreaking festival. That a Dutch party gets this honor is unique. The festival explores the power of art to be able to cast a new look on our inner life. 150 Psalms does exactly that: it unites society and art, with the knowledge that although the Psalms are 3000 years old, they still have a great present-day worth. This was an important reason for Lincoln Center to program 150 Psalms.”
