Saturday 10 december 2022, Kapel Huize Scherpenheuvel, 5-7 pm

Curacao Art Circle and  Classical Choir Curaçao are happy to invite you to our Advent concert. The Classical Choir Curaçao is a small group of experienced and enthusiastic singers.

We have created a lovely program of great choir pieces of all style periods, from the 16th to the 20th century. These are combined with great vocal solos and duets and some ear-pleasing instrumental music that all evoke the atmosphere of the advent season: anticipation, wonder and a longing for light, peace and a new beginning.

Of course, Ilja Huang, the well-known pianist and driving force of many of the concerts of the Curacao Art Circle, is at the piano. We are very proud to have tenor Michiel van ‘t Landt (semi-finalist of last year’s opera contest ARIA in the Netherlands) and harpist Germine Janssens (professional harp player in the Netherlands) in the program.  Curacao soloists in the program are soprano Marleen Ramrattan, alto Saskia Luckmann and tenor Fokko Scholma, and, last but not least, Andrew Solomon on oboe and Maril Leenders on flute.

We are looking forward to a great event and we are happy to invite you all to come and listen! A snack and a drink during the break are included.

Time: 5-7 pm (with a break with snacks and drinks)
