What is Saudade?
Wednesday: you get home from work, grab a bite, get your sheet music,
and off you go to immerse yourself in the warmth of a choir
rehearsal. Together you come to understand the music intimately and
put the finishing touches on the performance. After the rehearsal, you
can get to know each other while having a drink together in a bar. And
on regular occasions, you share the wonderful music with an audience,
during a concert in a church, museum, or in other special locations.
The Portuguese word saudade
means nostalgia, the
melancholic longing for people and experiences that only exist
as a beautiful memory. This word describes what our choir –
under the direction of our conductor Vincent Doek – wants to
convey with its music: a sense of beauty, nostalgia, and transience.
Do you want to sing with Saudade?
A beautiful voice is always welcome. Add your unique sound to our
choir. Our vacancies (in Dutch) are:
- een tenor,
- twee bassen,
- een sopraan.
Our repertoire is in various languages such as Latin, German, French
and English. Our rehearsals are in Dutch but we welcome those who have
a different native language.
