With Bart Van Reyn, the Vlaams Radiokoor has appointed a music director who will not only conduct his own productions, but will dedicate himself to shaping the complete vocal identity of the choir. "We will focus even more on intricate a capella productions under the label Vocal Fabric, and besides a remaining focus on music of our time the programming will include more baroque, in collaboration with the ensemble Il Gardellino," says Van Reyn. For their first Vocal Fabric series - rien à voir (september 2019) - conductor and choir will work together with Karl Meesters, who organises memorable concert experiences where the sound, acoustics and performance are of the
highest quality, thus raising awareness and support for the blind and visually impaired.
As music director, Bart Van Reyn will be closely involved with the casting and preparation of the choir for productions with other ensembles at home and abroad. He will also take under his wing the Radiokoor Atelier, a living portal for repertoire, knowledge, experience and voices, making our vocal heritage accessible to singers and audiences alike, and investing in the creation of new vocal work.
