Het Groot Pelts Fusiekoor (2018) o.l.v. Kevin Houben (BE)

20 October ━ 13.00
Klankenbos, Toekomstlaan 5, 3910 Neerpelt

In 2019, Neerpelt and Overpelt will be merged into a single amalgamated community: Pelt. As a celebratory start to the amalgamation year, as many choirs as possible from Neerpelt and Overpelt will come together in the ‘Groot Pelts Fusiekoor’. This one-off superchoir with more than 200 singers will perform a brand new composition on both banks of the Dommel in Klankenbos, which fittingly marks the old geographical border between Neerpelt and Overpelt. Together, they will herald the new amalgamated community. The music has been written by the Limburg composer Kevin Houben, whose music has been performed at Tomorrowland with the National Orchestra of Belgium. So you know you can expect a scintillating open-air composition performed by the biggest choir Pelt has ever seen: The Groot Pelts Fusiekoor.
