In 2023 I created a body of work in collaboration with the composer Janneke Moes. Our work, titled “A Whisper of Hope” will consist of my work and Janneke’s multiple choir composition. In this series on blog I’d like to take you on a tour of my work and my experiences.

“A Whisper of Hope” will performed on December 9 and 10, 2023 in Zeist and Amersfoort (The Netherlands). You can buy tickets (including the Christmas concert) here:

My works will also be shown from 1-30 December in the Noorderlichtkerk in Zeist. For those of you who cannot make it, I will create an online exhibition. After the performance I will also share a recording of the composition by Janneke.

I wondered if hope was always happiness. If it was always looking up and beyond, towards the better things to come. 

And when those better things come, does hope end there? Does it vanish into air or does it save itself for messier times?

When times are dark, does hope shine brighter? Or does it appear that way, because we look for it more carefully in the shadows cast upon us.

I sat thinking about these things, and the world seemed quite light. It made me wonder; does one have hope, when one thinks about hope?
