    Default Hello everyone

    Thanks for having me!

    I'm a composer and organist from the Netherlands.
    I've been interested in classical music since I was a little kid, and I started composing at age 15. Now, more than 35 years later, all my music is collected and available for free at, 200+ pieces in all genres, but mostly organ and choir music.
    As an organist, I play a beautiful historic organ in the South of the Netherlands and I'm also active as a choir director and accompanist.
    I used to be a member of the Dutch "organist" forum and the UK Gramophone forum for many years, so I've got some experience contributing to classical music forums. I hope I'll be able to share my thoughts about various musical subjets at this forum too.

    See you soon in the threads!

    Hello and welcome! Do you happen to live near the German border? I live in Cologne, and I'm quite often in Aachen (which is, as is well known, near the Dutch border) in order to listen to concerts of the students at the music university.

    I play the recorder and the tenor viol; my future husband plays the violoncello and also the viol (all sizes except the pardessus de viole). I also write classical music arrangements, mostly with the help of a computer program (Sibelius), but sometimes also "by hand".
