Kamerkoor JIP ft. Oene van Geel
In this concert, JIP makes an imaginary journey across a river, trying to understand the depth of water. Water that is a symbol of life and sources of life, with the sea as the ultimate resting place. Water that can connects cultures, but that can also cause a separation. Water that is a large part of our total ecology and is under pressure due to the constantly changing climate and environmental issues. JIP takes a deep dive and explores all aspects of water, with music from around the most impressive rivers on earth.
JIP choir sings the most beautiful music from Estonia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Canada, the United States, Finland, Ukraine and other countries.
The great improvisor, singer, violist Oene Van Geel will perform poetry about Rivers from De Gids Magazine no. 2019/2.
