Vos Hands Over the Baton
Robbert Vos has announced that he has stepped down as Musical Director at Dutch National Champion Brass Band Schoonhoven, but will remain as its solo euphonium. Commenting on the decision Robbert said, “During the lockdown I've had time to think about the things keeping me busy and the energy I take out of them. I've worked with a great team at the band to tackle different challenges, but the amount of energy that goes with it also comes at a cost and it is therefore important to divide it carefully. I've been very fortunate to have enjoyed many great musical experiences, such as our concert tour in Germany and our participation at the Brass in Concert Championships in 2019. I also thoroughly enjoyed the preparatory work and collaboration with Paul Holland for the successful 2019 National Championship."
BBS Board Member and soprano player Wouter Zuidam responded with, “We are sad that Robbert has decided to step down as MD, but we fully understand and respect his decision, which we know he feels is the right one. We are very happy though that Robbert is staying with us and will continue to be part of the BBS family as a hugely acclaimed performer.”
