The Organisation

In the historical hart of Utrecht

The choir and Chief Conductor Peter Dijkstra are supported by a dedicated staff of fifteen professionals employed by the Netherlands Chamber Choir, supplemented by freelance producers and content creators added to the organization on a project basis.

The office of the Netherlands Chamber Choir is located in the historic Museumkwartier of Utrecht in a medieval monastery. A charming and inspiring place to work with heart and soul for culture.
