To Be Sung

The ensemble To be Sung is formed by Elisa Roep - soprano, Eva van de Poll - violoncello and Fie Schouten - clarinets. In 2001 they started their very own journey for mostly contemporary repertoire in which the warm and expressive sound of their lyrical instruments could melt together, creating the unique sounding performances they are known for.

Besides performing established pieces, the trio plays especially commissioned music composed with their exceptional instrumental combination in mind.
For their project 'Amsterdam, de Wereld', To be Sung invited seven composers with a physical connection to the metropolis that is Amsterdam. With their diverse backgrounds (classical/ jazz/ improvisation and worldmusic) they composed new pieces that, just like the city itself, are infused with influences from cultures far-away and closer to home, bringing a wonderfully eclectic mix of musical styles.

In the Netherlands, To be Sung has played such diverse venues as De Link (Tilburg), Lantaren-Venster (Rotterdam), De Rode Hoed (Amsterdam) and Vredenburg (Utrecht) and several festivals such as Festival in the Shape of an Egg, Karnatic Lab Festival (both Amsterdam), Festival van de Kortste Nacht (Utrecht) and Festival Kamerklanken (Den Bosch). In 2004 they created a performance with two dancers for the festival OPENING! (Trier, Germany) moving on to Muiderpoorttheater (Amsterdam).
