NKK NXT – Choral singers of the future

The Netherlands Chamber Choir presents a new, groundbreaking talent development programme:

On September 18 2017, the first pilot edition of NKK NXT started. 9 motivated, young singers worked on their own concert programme for half a year. You can see the photo report here!

The programme

Do you want to develop yourself as ensemble singer of the future? As NKK NXT-trainee you will create your own, relevant concert programme together with your colleagues, and under the supervision of professionals of the Netherlands Chamber Choir. Develop your ensemble singing and vocal skills, but also your skills in concept development, production and marketing.

For whom?

You recently graduated from a conservatory, for example the studies Classical Singing, Teacher of Music, Choir Conductor, Composition or Musician 3.0

You are interested in ensemble singing, but you’re looking for more: you want to develop yourself as creator and leader. You have a message to share with your art. You want to engage a young audience with your story. And you want to develop your organisational skills.

What do we offer?

A part-time job (0,4 fte) from September 1, 2018 – March 1, 2019 with minimum wage.

In these 6 months you form an ensemble with the other trainees, with whom you create a relevant concert programme. Professionals of the Netherlands Chamber Choir supervise you and support you with ensemble singing, concept development, production and marketing.
