Ineke van Doorn and Marc van Vugt meet the Dutch Chamber Choir
In 2007, jazz singer Ineke van Doorn and composer Marc van Vugt embarked on a project with het Nederlands Kamerkoor (Netherlands Chamber Choir) called Inventing Jazz.
Van Vugt and van Doorn have made big names for themselves as singer/songwriters in the fields of jazz and improvisation, and van Vugt has for years also written for large ensembles active in these areas.
The press wrote:
This performance was definitely an admirable and fascinating attempt to explore boundaries; between improvisation and composition, and between the potential of highly experienced jazz musicians and vocalists, who are more comfortable with sheet music and conductor guidance.
Inventing Jazz was performed a.o. in the famous Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, in the new Muziekgebouw aan het IJ, also in Amsterdam, and was broadcasted by national radio (NPS).
