Rosa is celebrating its 15th birthday this year. The group was founded by musicians from the Utrecht Conservatory in 1997. Since then the group evolved into an appealing and leading music company that excels in mixing contemporary music with pop music and wonderful music theater.
Rosa absorbed the glorious work of Captain Beefheart (“Selling Hoovers in Mojave”) and collaborated with Spinvis, Hans Dagelet, Eric Vloeimans, Jan Jaap van der Wal and Collective 33one3rd. Rosa played in the Netherlands, in Canada, Great Britain, Brazil and Malta. In fifteen years, the Rosa Ensemble built a repertoire exploring all corners of contemporary and popular music. To celebrate its 15th anniversary Rosa released two CD”s: The ‘Anticantate ‘, one of Rosa’s most successful multi media programs, and a greatest hits CD titled ‘Shortbread & Outcakes’, both availiable in a limited edition.
