At Luscinia International Women’s Choir of The Hague we believe in singing with fun. Founded in 2005 as Bliss, we changed our name in 2009 to Luscinia which means nightingale in Latin.
Who we are
We are a small international English speaking choir and have around 25-30 members from all over the world. Think the British Isles, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Finland and Asia. We have four voice sections: 1st and 2nd soprano, 1st and 2nd alto.
At the moment we are at full capacity. However, if you want to put your name on the waiting list, please contact us! When you first join, you will undergo a voice test to see in which section you fit best. There is a 2 week trial period for new members. If you are interested, then please contact us.
How much does it cost?
After your 2 week trial period, you can become a full member of the choir. The cost is € 30 per month, per person. This amount is used to cover expenses (paying the conductor, piano player, rent, etc). We also ask for a € 10 deposit for the music folder, which will be reimbursed when you leave the choir and return the folder.
When and where do we rehearse?
We rehearse every Monday from 19:30 to 21:30 in the The American Women’s Club of The Hague, Johan van Oldenbarneveltlaan 43, The Hague, easily accessible by Trams 1 and 17, as well as Bus 21. There is also FREE street parking in the neighborhood.
We perform 6-7 times per year. We have taken part in choir festivals, charity performances, concerts for the elderly and events supported by the Gemeente Den Haag. We even sang at the Peace Palace in 2014. Twice a year we organise a concert for friends and family, both in summer and winter.
