Meet the singers: Marieke
Marieke van Dijk – Alt
In the new 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: Marieke.
Marieke is one of the altos of MAZE and is also in charge of the staging committee. With her experience in theatre, she knows exactly which movements fit the music best, without adding a dance routine to it. Partly because of this, she is a fantastic addition to the group! You can read her story below:
“My name is Marieke van Dijk. As a child, I played the recorder for 13 years. It wasn’t until I enrolled in drama academy that my passion for singing finally emerged. After the birth of my daughters I decided to do something with it. I sang in various cover bands, jazz bands and an awesome big band. Singing with MAZE, however, is even more rewarding: we strive to elicit the best from ourselves and each other. This leads to unprecedented creativity and growth. In addition to the music, I keep busy within MAZE designing the ‘stagings’ for our performances, which fits well with my theater background.”
