The Nederlands Kamerkoor, founder by conductor Felix de Nobel, presented itself for the first time on the radio on 1 October 1937. The choir still used a different name in that time. It was in December 1938 when the name ‘Nederlandsch Kamerkoor’ was used for the first time. From the very beginning the choir has been adventurous and innovative: By giving assignments to great composers and young talent, by developing of new forms and the exciting collaborations.
This jubilee year, innovation is highlighted as well: The Nederlands Kamerkoor will present their new corporate identity, including a brand new logo and pictures. In addition, we we’ll be working with a new record label: Alpha Records, with whom we will launch our own digital music channel in September. Finally, we will start a new talent development program for young singers: NKK NXT.
But above all, the 80th anniversary of the Nederlands kamerkoor should be celebrated with beautiful choral music. A triptych of projects will be presented in light of our anniversary: besides 150 Psalms, a tour with Amsterdam Sinfonietta with the Requiem of Fauré is plannend, besided the choir will perform one of the best choral works ever written: The Vespers of Rachmaninov.
