On November 29, the lyricist Marc Pantus and composer Bart Visman speak about their composition, the new IVC prize song "The Gold of Vermeer". IVC-laureate and Dutch Music Prize winner, tenor Peter Gijsbertsen, performs compositions by this Duo. On December 2, a Forum takes place about the future as it now looks for (young) singers.
