FONOS is an international vocal ensemble Based in Amsterdam
Bringing together singers from seven different countries, Fonos brings fresh
perspectives to early as well as contemporary vocal music.
All musicians are currently receiving their professional training at the world’s leading educational music institutions, while also actively participating in projects around Europe with some of the most renowned vocal chamber groups.
The singers met during one such project, in the summer of 2021: a program of dutch masters from. P. Sweelinck to more contemporary composers such as Ton de Leeuw, led by conductor Daniel Reuss. Shortly after, Fonos was founded.
The different cultural backgrounds of all singers allow Fonos to face traditional concepts in a new way. By sharing each other’s perspectives and working together closely, the ensemble aims for a unique and rich sound in every performance.
