Bibliotheek Neude

Working with professional or amateur singers, it is not always that different. Especially from the manager’s viewpoint. In this dedicated lounge for managers and organisers from both the professional and the amateur field you will meet managers from both worlds. To share experiences and knowledge and to enjoy the company of peers that all work as managers in different posities in the field of collective singing: event organisers, general secretaries, coordinators of networks, managers of choirs and much more.
The lounge is a perfect and informal opportunity to network and get to know all other participants in the event that work in management positions. Please feel free to join!

This lounge is hosted by TENSO together with the European Choral Association and Koornetwerk Nederland. Both Laura Lopes, Sonja Greiner and Daphne Wassink are looking forward to welcoming you.
