We will rehearse the specially composed song for the Children's Chorus Festival and work with a conductor, director, and choreographer to create a short performance.

The theme is Time. How was time created? Is time real? Can we go back or forward in time? Do we have enough time? Can we stop time or turn it around and take a block?

Artistic coordination & musical direction: Hanne van de Vrie
Repetitor & pianist: Charlie Bo Meijering
Stage direction: Naomi van der Linden
Choreography: Hanke Sjamsoedin
