Immix Vocal Ensemble

Sebastiaan Ammerlaan


What is your artistic training and background?

I played the violin and later the viola from my early youth. I started singing in university and then studied classical singing in Utrecht and The Hague.

What is you most memorable artistic experience?

Singing the solo baritone part in Sun Dogs by Ēriks Ešenvalds with other ensemble singing students. It was such an honor to sing and the artistic quality was exactly where I wanted it to give me chills each concert.

Immix Vocal Ensemble sprung out from NKK NXT, a traineeship organized by the Nederlands Kamerkoor where young singers explore what choir singing is about by creating and producing their own performance. Why did you want to be a part of this program?

I wanted to see where innovation in ensemble singing could be found that’s more than simply adding staging to what is otherwise a regular choir performance.

What is your superpower in Immix Vocal Ensemble?

I am the local modern music enthusiast, finding charm and appeal in the strangest of places.
