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.
