Calefax is delighted to announce their new General Manager: Hannah Soepenberg.
Hannah will start her job at Calefax on February 2, 2022. She is currently business manager at the Ricciotti Ensemble and previously at KASKO (Chamber Opera House), bringing a wide range of experience, social commitment and vision within chamber music.
Bass clarinetist Jelte Althuis: “With Hannah Soepenberg, Calefax has once again brought in a great talent after recruiting clarinetist Bart de Kater. We look forward to continuing our role in the chamber music world with her, to anticipate on developments in the scene, and to remain at the forefront of the international network of reed quintets, working closely with Calefax’s existing agents, in London, Berlin and New York.”
Hannah Soepenberg: “From a business point of view, it seems like a great assignment to guide Calefax through these turbulent times. The reed quintet’s constant search for ways to experience music in new and different ways has proven itself very well. I am therefore looking forward to further strengthen the position that Calefax occupies (inter)nationally and I am looking forward to collaborating with them.”
Until February 1, the email address firstname.lastname@example.org will be read and answered by Rikkert Kremer, who will continue as a freelancer in the art and culture sector. We sincerely thank Rikkert for his involvement with Calefax.
