Meet & greet singer Nora Fischer, who blurs the lines between classical and pop. This talk at the Dutch Centre is organised in collaboration with the Dutch Church and takes place on Wednesday 18 July.
Nora Fischer is challenging the way we listen to the voice. With her special interest in creative interpretations of classical works, Amsterdam-based singer Nora is renowned for her adventurous performance practice and innovative approach to live performance. Using her voice as a versatile instrument, her repertoire ranges from Monteverdi to the many compositions that have been written for her in the present day.
Nora is passionate about new music and has worked closely with many of today’s leading contemporary composers, including Louis Andriessen, Osvaldo Golijov, Steve Reich, David Lang, Michel van der Aa and Nico Muhly. During the 2017/18 season, Nora performed in major concert halls across Europe as part of the ECHO Rising Stars Tour, nominated by the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Brussels Bozar. In September 2017 Nora signed with Universal Music; her debut album HUSH was released on Deutsche Grammophon in April 2018.
Nora regularly performs solo concerts and devises projects involving baroque, classical and contemporary vocal repertoire, ranging from traditional concert programmes to genre-defying collaborations. She also frequently partners with a number of theatre companies in order to explore the intersection between new music and theatre.
Nora will be interviewed by Jon Jacob of the successful classical music blog thoroughlygood. He keeps track of new initiatives in the world of classical music. For more info, click here.
