Future projects

The last 4 years we have organized a Summer Course in France for small groups of young singers. In collaboration with the Academie de la Roche d’Hys the singers were coached and advised with effective auditioning and career planning. Several participants during the last three summer have appeared recently at major opera houses: tenor Nikhil Navkal sang a major role during the Aix-en-Provence Festival and is currently making his debut in Australia . Counter tenor Daichi Fujiki  recently sang for the Vienna State Opera and has many engagements in Japan. Soprano Katharine Dain appeared with the Dutch National Opera in various productions.

The final plans for the summer of 2016 have been announced.From August 5-16, 2016 we will organize our 5th Summercourse in La Roche d’Hys,  again in collaboration with the Academy de la Roche d’has, Jeannette Aster- General Director.  More information can be found under ‘WORKSHOPS ‘ and on the website of the Acedemie ( www.academiedelarochedhys.com)

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCES

During his tenure as Director of Opera Studio Nederland Hans Nieuwenhuis has organized two important international conferences with a range of directors of Young Artists Programs and Vocal Competitions, impresarios and casting directors. Both conferences (in 2000 and 2010) were named after Hans de Roo, the late intendant of the Netherlands Opera who was a staunch supporter of young opera talent. The Foundation will continue this tradition and organize regular meetings of a range of professionals involved in teaching, coaching and casting young singers. Participants will include impresarios, casting directors, leaders of singing competitions and opera studios and artistic directors of opera companies and concert series. These meetings are in service of finding new ways to identify and support immerging operatic talent.    The last 3 years we have organized a Summer Course in France for small groups of young singers. In collaboration with the Academie de la Roche d’Hys the singers were coached and advised with effective auditioning and career planning. Several participants during the last three summer have appeared recently at major opera houses: tenor Nikhil Navkal sang a major role during the Aix-en-Provence Festival and counter tenor Daichi Fujiki will sing for the Vienna State Opera in the coming season.

PRESENTATIONS

The foundation will produce musical performances and presentations with “Orfeo Singers” in important venues in Amsterdam, Paris, Vienna and Montreal. For these projects we will almost always work together with our partners, festivals or sponsors.
