Ever since the choir classes were removed from the Musicology curriculum, Study Association Hucbald has organised a Remembrance Day concert in Utrecht on May 4th, the Dutch day of national remembrance. This project was first realised in 2009. Nowadays it is a recurring part of the Remembrance Day services in Utrecht on May 4th. Hucbald’s Remembrance committee has the honor to organise this project every year. They arrange for funding and sponsorships, take care of the orchestra and organise all the rehearsals. The choir consists for the largest part of inexperienced singers, there are no starting requirements and everyone is welcome! Nevertheless, we succeed every year in putting together a performance of high musical quality that is also very expressive. In previous years the requiems of Cherubini, Mozart, Duruflé, Saint-Saëns, Verdi and Fauré have been performed. This year we will be performing the extraordinary piece A Child of our Time, by composer Michael Tippett.
Here you can sign up to participate in the choir for this year.
