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 celebrating its silver jubilee!

This year is a special year: the 25th edition of Qui Vive will take place in La Flèche.

What started as a one-off adventure in 1998 has become a common thread in the lives of many people. Every reason to translate that fact into a concert with a special program.

The choice fell on performing Monteverdi’s complete Vespers for the Blessed Virgin.
