NNJO plays the book of Urizen

Noord Nederlands Symphony orchestra goes HAFABRA volume 2.

Last saturday we performed in theater de Harmonie in Leeuwarden. This was the second event in which the NNJO met the pro’s on stage, all organised by the North Nederlands Symphony Orchestra and their artistic leader Marcel Mandos.

Before the interval the Noord Nederlands Jeugdorkest and Brassband Soli Deo Gloria performed music of Johan de Meij and Jacob de Haan. They where rewarded as most performed classical composers throughout the world and received a BUMA award for that fact.

After the Break Johan de Meij conducted his second Symphony: The Big Apple.

The Book of Urizen is composed for windband, soprano singer and narrator. For our performance we invited Levy Pletting, soprano and Wouter Braaf, narrator. What a job they did.
