From August 2003 I'm conductor of wind-orchestra Concordia from Balk. It's an orchestra with great history and long tradition in playing on a very acceptable level. I'm very glad with this new challenge: working with an orchestra with possibilities and talent. Especially the repertoire is different from brassband and fanfareband, which makes the rehearsals very refreshing for me.



The TOF Superband is a new formation with a surprising high level. I personally started the band and that's why they gave permission to put my initials in the name. After a few years of "starting up" we're now getting our place and building up a name in the music-scene of Holland. The music the band plays is mostly popular and I'm very ambitious to make this "superband" a big success. Highlight till now is the gala-performance we gave during the Worldchampionships speedskating (march 2002). (more information on www.tofsuperband.nl)
