Tenso Network Europe

TENSONederlands Kamerkoor is a member of Tenso Network Europe, the European network for professional chamber choirs. In Tenso Network Europe, the joint efforts and achievements of the most prominent European chamber choirs are combined and disseminated within the context of a growing European network. As of 2017 the network counts 19 members from 15 European countries. Since Tenso was founded in 2003, its members have collaborated in developing the choral repertoire, coaching young performers, composers and conductors, and presenting new choral music to large audiences at the Tenso Days festivals.

Developing choral repertoire
With the joint commissioning programme, new choral music is brought to concert stages all over Europe. Tenso’s latest project 14-18: from poetry to music brings to life poems from 1914-1918, one of the most turbulent periods in European history, in new choral music.

Coaching young performers, composers and conductors
Tenso has developed several projects to stimulate young artists to develop their skills in choral music:

  • Tenso Europe Chamber Choir (summer school and short concert series)
  • Tenso Young Composers Workshop (workshops with Tenso choirs, leading to a commission for the award winner)
  • Tenso Masterclass for Conductors (masterclasses with Tenso conductors and choirs)

Tenso Days international choir festival
Aimed at a large and general audience of music lovers, the festival provides a showcase of the very best of chamber choir performances, lined with workshops and other activities involving amateurs and young professionals. The festival takes place twice a year in cities all over Europe.
