A celebration of the great women composers of my motherland.

MujeresDeLunaCard

Starting May 2017, we will present our new theater concert for the '17-'18 season, featuring the Pavadita String Quartet, my latin jazz group and video projections with Dutch text about the life stories of these women.
Listen here to demo versions of some great arrangements that will be part of this show and the accompanying CD - for example, our recording of 'Esta Vez Tocó Perder' by Maria Teresa Vera (1895-1965), as arranged by Michael Simon.
