Brabant Koor | Reflections On Nicolas

Discover the many faces of Saint Nicholas! For us, the good man is mainly known for December 5th, but centuries-old legends precede that... So: who was 'Saint Nicholas'?


In a nine-part work, the lesser-known stories of Nicholas are explored. Get acquainted with the miraculous journey that Nicolas undertook to eventually become as we know him best: Saint Nicholas.

Benjamin Britten

The music of Benjamin Britten amplifies this drama through striking contrasts in the instrumentation, the style of the vocal parts, and in musical textures. Fun fact: this work was the first specifically written by Britten for amateur musicians. To complete the story fully, there is also a special passage where the audience is invited to sing along.

Premiere

In addition to Benjamin Britten's music, it will also be the premiere of two new compositions. These works have been composed by two composition students of the Fontys Master of Music. We invite everyone to attend this premiere!

A special collaboration

The Reflections project is a musical project of Brabant Choir and Fontys Music and Performing Arts, and the Master of Music program. Young people use themes from a choral work to reflect on possible meanings through various artistic expressions from their own perspective. This free interpretation yields fascinating results and a new perspective on a concert to be performed and its experience. Both for the performers and for the audience.
