Klaartje van Veldhoven
Klaartje is praised for her clear tone of voice, her love of adventure and her honest interpretations.
Already from an early age on, she has been heard on the concerthalls abroad. Klaartje studied in Switzerland and the Netherlands at the Schola Cantorum in Basel and the Koninklijk Conservatorium in the Hague. After graduating cum laude, she was invited to be a singing teacher at the Royal Conservatory.
Klaartje worked together with improvising musicians, such as Bert van den Brink, Maarten Ornstein, Tony Overwater, Rembrandt Frerichs and Jörg Brinkmann, to widen her horizon.
In 2006 she was asked for a European tour with the European Union Baroque Orchestra conducted by Christina Pluhar. As a solo performer she sang with the Residentie Orkest, the Nieuwe Philharmonie Utrecht, conducted by Johannes Leertouwer, Ton Koopman, Sigiswald Kuijken en the Spirit of Gambo. She also regularly participates in small strength projects of the Nederlandse Bachvereniging.
Klaartje has cooperated in various CD-productions, among which: J.S. Bach’s Hohe Messe with the Nederlandse Bach Vereniging, H. Purcell’s King Arthur with the Barokopera Amsterdam, Händel’s La Resurrezione and Aminta and Fillide, both with Contrasto Armonico. In 2010 she recorded an album with Pergolesi´s Stabat Mater, in the Dutch translation by Willem Wilmink, with the Nieuwe Philharmonie Utrecht. This album was awarded a 10 in the Luister.
