CoMA Eindhoven was founded in 2018. The first years we played under the direction of Arjan van Baest. Lucas Vis has been our music leader since the beginning of 2021. Lucas is internationally renowned as a conductor of contemporary music. He conducted premieres by Stockhausen, Cage, Andriessen and many others. In addition to his professional work, Lucas has always worked with amateurs. See: https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucas_Vis.
We have 17 musicians: strings, woodwind, piano, accordion and electric guitar.
In 2020, CoMA Eindhoven and CoMA Maastricht organized a large-scale festival under the title Pepper in your ear. 150 amateur musicians and choristers from home and abroad were introduced to playing contemporary music.
In November 2021, CoMA Eindhoven will participate in the festival of the KNM Campus Ensemble in Berlin. In March 2022 we will play at the composers’ competition New Notes in Maastricht.
The ensemble meets once a month on Saturday mornings.
