English summary

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.
