The Oostertrio, formed in 2018, consists of Sophie Schreurs (clarinet), Lotte Grotholt (viola) and Maria Nikiforov (piano). All three of them study at the bachelor's degree program at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. Their repertoire varies from classical to modern and post-modern. They have traveled to many cities in the Netherlands to perform including pieces by composers such as Paul Juon and Max Bruch.
The Barok Bende is a fluctuating ensemble that performs “Early Music” in a surprising new way without losing sight of the musical values. Collaboration with other art forms, cultures and street style is deliberately sought in order to step beyond our own boundaries and create exciting, crunching performances. We work closely with other art disciplines and street artists, so that the performances become a feast for all the senses. The aim of the Barok Bende is to create several complete theater performances.
