During 150 Psalms in Utrecht, De Balie organized special introductions by Oek de Jong, Désanne van Brederode and Ramsey Nasr. These introductions provided a stimulating thought that let the visitors listen to the concerts in other ways. Did you miss these introductions, or do you want to read them back? De Balie collected the introductions and published them on their website. The introductions by Ramsey Nasr will be added here if they are available.

Do you want to reminisce 150 Psalms in other ways? The online TV channel Parmando24Culture made a video registration of the concerts, which will be broadcasted in the next months.

Radio station Radio 4 recorded all the concerts. These recordings will be used in their programs Musica Religiosa, on Saturday mornings, and Tussen Hemel en Aarde, on Sunday mornings.

It is also possible to order the program book of 150 Psalms in our web shop.

On 1 and 2 September, the premiere of 150 Psalms took place in Utrecht! During this weekend we welcomed many people in TivoliVredenburg for the 12 concerts, the lectures and the reflective installations.

We received enthusiastic reactions from the audience and the media were also very positive about the project. NRC reported: ‘150 Psalms successfully addresses current issues’. Trouw reported: ‘The variety of choirs gave the Psalm Festival dimension,’ which shows that the collaboration with the other three choirs during this project was also appreciated.

We are looking back on a very successful first edition of 150 Psalms and are looking forward to the concerts of 150 Psalms in New York in November 2017 and in Brussels in March 2018.
