Leave your ego at the door: an interview with iNtrmzzo


Touring, all-male a cappella group seeks new singer. High-ish voice. Must have good personality and sense of humor. ABSOLUTELY NO BIG EGOS.

Bald singers preferred.

Since its formation in 1984 (as Intermezzo), Dutch group iNtrmzzo has had many iterations and many different members. The original members were students and sang primarily classical repertoire.

My thoughts on EVA Membership

I remember very well the "EVA Initiation Meeting" we had in Aarhus 2011. So many brilliant ideas about Contemporary a Cappella gaining mainstream acceptance and being part of school's curricula across the European borders. The big brains behind it ...Volker Bauer, Florian Städtler, Jim Daus Hjernoe and Peder Karlsson to mention a few have  slowly but surely been working on strategies, drawing talented musicians and music educators into the boat and networking across the whole of Europe. It is more than time for the people who this will most benefit to also jump on board and set sail.
