About SU

Live, Laugh, Sing & Perform!

Who are we?

Singing Unlimited is a female chorus that sings a cappella in four voices. Starting with a small group in 2013, we now consist of approx. 50 enthusiastic members of all ages and from a variety of backgrounds. Our repertoire varies from contemporary pop music to moving film music and beautiful ballads.

Singing together is our passion!

As an a cappella chorus, we want to continuously improve ourselves. Good coaching, rehearsing and having lots of fun singing together help us with that. SU stands for high quality performances, both in singing and performance and we enjoy sharing our love for music with the public.

Our Director - Anita Zengerink

The artistic direction of Singing Unlimited is in the hands of Anita Zengerink. She is a certified Musical Director (Sweet Adelines International).

 

The growth that SU is experiencing is certainly also due to the varied rehearsals, in which Anita as conductor teaches the members various barbershop techniques. She asks every chorus member to continue to develop themselves vocally and musically.

 

During rehearsals, Anita teaches the chorus to apply the techniques in such a way that the unique barbershop sound (creating a fifth overtone with four voices) can be heard in every song.

 

Anita: “I think it's important that the Chorus and Director have the same ambition, which is to convey the musical message. That's what the audience comes for!" As a Director she knows how to achieve that interaction in an inspiring way.

From longest member to biggest fan

Since the foundation of SU in 2013, Nel Tieman and Nelleke Jansen have been very active and cherished members of our chorus. We couldn't just let their 'retirement' from our chorus pass by. On Thursday 19 December 2019 we said goodbye to them in a festive way and 'crowned' Nel and Nelleke as our honorary members. Even though they no longer sing with us, they are – as our biggest fans – present at almost every SU performance.
