This ensemble is a real treat. Wonderful songs, they even tap danced two songs!! They told us that they took lessons with Stephanie Detry’s husband in their tap dance school in Liège, Belgium. Leon van Wijk with his accordion was the special guest. He accompanied the sopranos and played a solo piece by Astor Piazzolla. When the performance had finished we got the occasion to talk to the sopranos and make photos. We also spotted Teun, Micaëla and Ellie in the audience and they were so kind to make photos with us too.
Duration of the video: 30 minutes.
The “VerrasSing” ensemble was started during the Corona lock down (2020 - 2021). The three sopranos sang distance proof for people in care centers to give them some entertainment. If you want to know more about their activities back then,click HERE.We created three pages on this website about how André and the orchestra members spent their days during the long lock down.
