Farewell to Heleen
Monday 21 October 2019
After working with guest singers for years, in March 2016 Heleen van de Water from Utrecht became our regular singer. Since then she has always amazed us many gigs with her voice. Strong and powerful in songs like Skyfall and Feeling Good, but also modest as in Skylark and Summertime. But she could also surprise with It's Oh So Quiet. She made a great impression (and not only with us!) during the gig at the TOP2000 Big Band Festival at De Vorstin in Hilversum end of 2016.
Now Heleen has announced that she is going to stop as our regular singer and that is a bit of a swallow for us. As a reason, she indicated that she wants to continue growing by taking on new challenges. We respect that, as if it is with pain in the heart. Nevertheless, we hope that in the future we will be able to call on her every now and then if it suits us and of course Heleen.
On Sunday 24 November we will therefore give her one more chance to shine as OUR (even if it is divorcing) singer in farewell concert in Grand Café Vyssotski in Amersfoort.
Then come and watch and above all listen and give Heleen the farewell she deserves.
