Van A’dam Ensemble

Mezzosopraan, viool, harp & contrabas

In de Oosterkerk:


The Van A’dam Ensemble was created in 2018 by three Portuguese students of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, Maria Lagrifa (harp), Cláudia Ribas (voice) and Daniel Perzhan (violin). The group was created to perform for the chamber music exams at the Conservatorium and by 2019 grew into it’s final shape with the addition of it’s new element, the double bassist Edgar Milhões. Since then, the ensemble has arranged and performed some of Mahler’s songs, like “Um Mitternacht” and “Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen” and is now working on a new project to spread Portuguese music, by a concert that showcases the various styles of Portuguese music, from classical to traditional and from old to new.
