Orchestra of the Dutch Royal Air force
I can proudly announce that I recently started as one of the new soloists for the orchestra of the Dutch Royal Air force.
The orchestra is conducted by Major Conductor Jasper Staps (seen on the photo above)
It’s a great honor to be playing with this amazing orchestra. Right now a new show is being put together.
All members of this orchestra had to undergo hardcore military training after auditioning to even be able to play in this orchestra. So this must be the only orchestra I’ve ever played with that could not only survive without all it’s roadies to carry their gear, but could probably haul it themselves while crawling through mud in hostile conditions.
Fortunately for me, as a soloist doing just a single tour I could skip this ordeal. I’ve kept my humble civilian status and get right on stage with them
