Luthers Bach Ensemble
The Luthers Bach Ensemble has two choirs: a small choir and a ‘project’ choir. The small choir is comprised of very experienced singers and a number of professionals and has made a name for itself in recent years with performances in the Netherlands and Germany. The project choir is comprised of a group of enthusiastic amateur singers who give a concert twice a year. The LBE’s baroque orchestra are young and talented musicians from all over the world, led by violinist/leader Joanna Huszcza (Brussels) and continuo and harpsichord player Robert Koolstra. All have studied early music at such renowned conservatories as Amsterdam and The Hague.
