ABOUT THE ORCHESTRA

The symphony orchestra Plenum was founded in the summer 2016, by a group of young Copenhagen-based musicians, who enjoy playing symphonic music together.

However, it is also very important for us to have a social orchestra and to get to know each other. We don’t just come to rehearse – we also have a lot of fun.

At the moment we are playing a more classical repertoire, but we are also open to more modern pieces and maybe film music.

We currently have a bit more than 20 members, and we are still recruiting new musicians. We especially need strings (violins, violas, celli and double basses), an oboe, french horns, trombones and percussion.

Bram Kortekaas (Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 1989) studied composition with Willem Jeths and Wim Henderickx at the Conservatory of Amsterdam, and political science at the University of Amsterdam and the University of Copenhagen. In recent years he has mainly written orchestral compositions, commissioned by the Noordholland Youth Orchestra, Ricciotti Ensemble, VU-Orchestra Amsterdam and the Dutch Student Chamber Orchestra (Nesko). His most recent composition Balance of Power for percussion solo and orchestra was performed by Nesko (conducted by Ivan Meylemans) and soloist Niek Kleinjan throughout the Netherlands in April 2016.
