Welcome to our website!
Qui Vive is a Dutch project choir and orchestra of about 50 musicians that travels to France in July at the start of each summer holiday to perform beautiful classical music. The group was founded in 1998 by Ad van Unen and Annemarie de Groot who envisioned France as the ideal place for a group of musical enthusiasts to pitch their tents for a relaxed holiday and a week of musical bliss.
Qui Vive consists of amateurs and a few (semi-) professional musicians and is conducted by Ad van Unen, music teacher and conductor of several choirs in Delft and Breda.
QUI VIVE IS HOME AGAIN
Qui Vive looks back on a wonderful week in La Flèche, France, July 15 to 23, 2023. It was the third and final visit to La Flèche. The beautiful program was performed in Saumur, Angers and La Flèche and the audience made us feel that it was very much appreciated.
Some setbacks of various kinds (illness, organizational problems) were handled very well, which once again confirms that Qui Vive consists of a group of fantastic, committed people who find each other not only in music but also socially.
Facebook users have been able to follow our experiences at https://www.facebook.com/quivive. Soon the pictures will appear on this website.
