The series of relaxed concerts will include audience interaction, drinks, and even laughter
By Thomas Ansell
The Kamerorkest van het Noorden is launching its new ‘Lounge Sessions’, a series of relaxed and interactive concerts, held in socially distanced, small groups. The first session takes place Sunday 27 September at Het Paleis on the Boterdiep in Groningen, with the title ‘How to give birth to a string quartet?’; led by Jenifer Yáñez of the Prins Claus Conservatorium (and the Kamerorkest).
A total of five concerts will be staged throughout October and November, with tickets (including a drink) costing 15 euros (or 10 euros for students). The series is themed around the string section, with the Orchestra performing solos, duos, trios; and string quartets- and the audience get involved too by helping shape the sometimes surprising stories around the wonderful music.
Everything from Di Lasso, to Beethoven, Bach; Shotakovich, Kurtág, and more will be played for the lucky audience (which is only 25 members due to social distancing). Tickets for the kick-off performances on Sunday 27 September, at 14:00 and 15:30, are available here.
