Mareille de Blok – Mezzo
In the item ‘meet the singers’ we’ll introduce all the members of MAZE one by one. You probably already know all the faces, but who is the person behind that beautiful voice? You will find it out here!
This week: Mareille.
Mareille is one of our mezzo sopranos and has been singing with MAZE since the very start. As head of the styling committee, she was responsible for our outfits for two years and made sure that we always looked nice on stage. She has also become our vlog queen and she is part of the PR committee! Read her story below:
“You won’t hear me say: ‘I have been singing from an early age’. I started singing when I was in high school. I was persuaded by friends to participate in a singing contest and as the reactions were positive, my love for singing started growing. When I finished high school, I started studying for Bachelor of Education in music at Codarts Rotterdam. Flugelhorn was my main instrument and singing was my sub-specialization. During my time at Codarts I met Merel Martens. I still remember repeatedly asking her: ‘If you’ll ever start a vocal group in Rotterdam, could you please let me know?’. And here I am, Mezzo Mareille. I am very proud to be a part of MAZE and to be able to share my passion for singing with friends. It often gives me goose bumps when we sing!”
