Since 2019, Musis Arnhem, Phion, Orkest De Ereprijs and ArtEZ have been organising the Andriessen Festival. For this third edition, we unfortunately cannot receive you, our beloved audience, physically in the concert hall. We are very pleased that we can offer the full program from 6 to 13 March online for free via a stream, so that you can enjoy the most beautiful music at home.

Congratulations to all! We are looking forward to meeting you & working with you in March!
The annual Young Composers Meeting is an initiative of orkest de ereprijs. We offer young professional composers the opportunity to compose a piece for the ensemble and thus develop their talents, thereby increasing their knowledge and building a network.
From January 2021 Aspasia Nasopoulou will take over from Wim Boerman as artistic leader of de ereprijs. We look ahead with her to the period from 2021.
The limitations of the moment will determine the shape of our upcoming concerts, but these rules do not prevent us from looking ahead with enthusiasm and an open mind. We want to strengthen the link between current music and current events in society: to show that new music is needed.
That was it. Just over 40 years and all with great pleasure. It is still a great pleasure, but a number of incidentals prompted the passing of the baton. With many thanks to all members and ex-members of de ereprijs, because without their constant energy and commitment it would never have been possible. Naturally, this also applies to the various board members, who have helped to lay and maintain the foundation for all activities. Not to forget in this context the various politicians, both locally and especially regionally and the associated authorities.
Congrats Ed Bennett on Psychedelia! We are very happy to be part of your newest release.
In the coming weeks, students at ten secondary schools in the Netherlands and Germany will close the Ereprijs composition project with a concert, where all new compositions will be performed by Orkest De Ereprijs. Due to the corona measures, the concerts are not open to the public, but can be followed via a live stream.
Last month we recorded the impressive composition 'De Reiger' (Kate Moore, 2019) in Musis Arnhem. Mirthe Dokter made an analog animation on an overhead projector.
We are happy to add Florian to the team of senior composers at the 2021 edition of the Young Composers Meeting. Welcome Florian!
