HAN, a digital world première
This Summer, Europa Cantat is taking place in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Two Dutch choirs, the Netherlands Student Chamber Choir and the Utrechtse Studenten Cantorij, were supposed to travel to the festival together. For the occasion, they commissioned a festive new piece – titled HAN – by Frieda Gustavs, a young composer from Amsterdam. The world première of this piece was supposed to happen during Europa Cantat.
The choirs took the initiative to make a recording of the piece, supported by Leading Voices and ZIMIHC. The result will be released and receive a digital world première during the free accesible Europa Cantat TV programme and will be broad casted on Tuesday 20th of July at 15.00 hrs.
The complete Europa Cantat TV programme will be broad casted from Saturday morning,17 July until Thursday afternoon, 22 July.
