Martin Van Der Brugge – guest conductor

Martin Van Der Brugge obtained his orchestra director’s diploma from the Rotterdam Conservatory under Arie van Beek in 1990 and his choir director’s diploma from the Royal Conservatory in The Hague in 1994, partly under the tuition of acclaimed directors Jan Boogaarts and Ed Spanjaard. In addition he attended master classes in Biel, Switzerland and the Weiner Meisterkurz given by Julius Kalmar. In later years, Martin successfully organised the first master class for directors in Bulgaria.

In 1996 he gave concerts with the Vidin Philharmonic Orchestra as guest director. Martin was appointed regular guest director of the Mersin State Opera and Ballet of Turkey, with various productions including Verdi’s Rigoletto performed under his direction. He has also performed as guest director of the Paliashvili Symphony Orchestra and Choir in Tbilisi, Georgia. Martin has held his baton performing in numerous countries among which the Czech Republic, Poland, Austria, Germany, Spain and Slovenia. He has been long-term director of several oratorium choirs and a chamber music ensemble in the Netherlands. He will be accompanied in October with the Dutch Project Choir.
