is a choir from the Dutch city of Haarlem made up of about 50 men and women. They are a relaxed group of singers, clearly as comfortable on the stage as on the street. Artistic director Harry Habets makes original choices of existing music, and the choir interprets his compositions or arrangements, and sometimes the work of choir members as well. This dynamic group brings theatrical elements to its performances, so that there's always more to experience than just the music.(WU 15 GR)
