Clash of Classics is a totally new experience of classical music. This is the concert where classical music is combined with other music styles and dance. The most unexpected combinations are made, with pop, R&B, classical and techno, among others. The classical music will be performed by students of the Prince Claus Conservatoire in Groningen. The students will play all kinds of instruments, including strings, the piano, percussion and flutes. They will play together with singer Simona, among others.

Simona is a Dutch singer & songwriter living in Groningen. She writes and sings music in the genres of pop and R&B. In 2018, she graduated from the Institute for Performing Arts and danced for major shows until 2020. From 2020, she picked up writing music again and has since been an artist with multiple EPs. Most recently, she has performed at Winterwelvaart and Eurosonic Noorderslag. She is enthusiastic about working with artists from the conservatoire.

The evening closes with a DJ combined with percussion provided by the students.

This unique collaboration will take place on stage in VERA on 2 February 2023, hope to see you then!
