Antony Hermus will be directing a Beethoven-heavy programme with the Hanze Symphony Orchestra
By Thomas Ansell
The Hanzehogeschool Groningen’s virtuoso music school, the Prince Claus Conservatorium, will be holding its main concert live and with an audience this year, with four shows to be played on July 1 and 2. Conductor Antony Hermus will be leading the Hanze Symphony Orchestra in a programme featuring lots of Beethoven, and the final performance (21:00 on July 2) will be live-streamed, for anyone that wants some mood music on a summer evening.
All of the performers in the orchestra will be students of classical music at the Conservatorium, which is one of just nine top-level music schools in the Netherlands. The performances will take place at 19:00 and 21:00, on July 1 and 2.
On June 29, a panel discussion will take place in the Forum Groningen, about the life and world of Beethoven, hosted by Conductor Antony Hermus, and head of classical music at the Conservatorium, Mark Vondenhoff.
