Since September 2016, Popkoor Epic has been conducted by Marjon Dries. She would like to introduce herself:
“By singing in vocal groups and conducting various pop choirs, I express my great passion for polyphonic music. I love nothing more than sharing this passion with people and guiding vocalists in their development. In 2013, I graduated from the conservatory in Tilburg, since then I have been active as a conductor, vocal coach and singer. I really enjoy making music with different people at all levels and everything that comes with it. My aim is, at least for myself, but preferably for everyone, to give people goosebumps and to see both singers and audience go home bouncing. “
Since September 2021, Pop Choir EPIC has been accompanied on piano by Ian Janssen. He would like to introduce himself to you:
“I started playing the piano through my grandfather. I then took lessons and, together with the music course at secondary school, this led to my now studying at the Academy for Music Education. During that time, I started accompanying more people and that is how I found out that secretly I like it. Different accompaniments can make a song sound completely different, so you have to make sure that everything is in context. To do this with a choir is extra fun for me, because I also find choral singing very cool and I like to sing together. To be able to participate in the process of rehearsing is also a good bonus. All in all, this is a super opportunity and we are going to produce good musical results! “
Since August 2021, the board of Popkoor EPIC has consisted of (f.l.t.r) Marissa , Hannelore and Eline. We have been singing with Popkoor EPIC for a long time and this year we have decided to take up the challenge of being the board. Until now we are having a great time!
In addition to attending and singing along to the weekly rehearsals, we arrange everything with regards to performances, open rehearsals, rehearsal days, and the annual final concert. In addition, we also work on the less visible things, such as the rehearsal space and subsidies. We are always open to feedback: you can always contact us with questions and input via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our choir has four vocal groups: the sopranos, the mezzos, altos and the men. Together they sing polyphonic and ensure that every performance goes well.
These ladies belong to the highest voice group in our choir and can hit the highest notes! This year, the sopranos consist of: Inge, Britt, Gaby, Eva, Namara, Leonie, Paulina and Gitta.
This are the mezzos of Popkoor EPIC! They are the middle voice group. Together they always contribute to a beautiful performance of the choir. This year, the mezzos consist of Marissa, Eline, Lauren, Hannelore, Maria, Iris, Hannah and Clara.
The altos belong to our lowest female voice group and always give everything to make it beautiful. This year the altos consist of Sarina, Kathi, Sanne, Pleun, Anne, Sandra, Konul and Vera.
Since this year, our choir also has a full men’s vocal group! Their beautiful voices give an extra layer to our polyphonic songs. This year the men consist of Raúl, Timo, Lars, Martin and Piero.
