Vignolle Ensemble

The Vignolle Ensemble is a young and ambitious string ensemble, consisting of Dutch students and alumni. The ensemble was founded in the spring of 2012 as a one-off project orchestra, but the formula proved very successful and soon new projects followed. The orchestra now travels to France every year to give concerts and organize educational activities for children. The Vignolle Ensemble also supervises soloists and choirs on a project basis and plays at festivals. The orchestra played works by a.o. Bach, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Dvořák and Elgar, and is constantly expanding its repertoire.

The members of the Vignolle Ensemble come from various Dutch student orchestras. They do not have a professional background in music, but play in the orchestra alongside their studies or work. Under the direction of conductor Eduardus Lee, the ensemble has developed its own unique timbre.

In the 2021-2022 season, the Vignolle Ensemble plays a festive program with music by Vaughan Williams, Britten and Dvořák, and in the spring of 2020 Mahler, more Mahler, and … Mahler’s arrangement of Beethoven’s Eleventh String Quartet. Please find more information below.
