Herring party, Auction and Singing
On June 28th there's been a herring party at the Binnenbos, Hoog Kanje 186, in Zeist.
To assure a nice broad offering Ellen has contacted several artists.
On auction was work by Lian de Zwaan, Nanda van der Vliet, Diana Gaikhorst en Henneke Hoogendoorn and by Ellen herself.
Next to the herring, a drink and the auction, one could enjoy a performance by "Popkoor Zing je Rot" (See also picture impression below).

Lots of activity at Griftbosje
The Griftbosje is a neighbourhood initiative in Zeist-West that involves cleaning-up and redeveloping a vacant lot on the corner of the Griffenseijnselaan and Ridderschapslaan.
As part of NL-Doet a huge amount of work was done on March 9th. 2018 at the Griftbosje.
Active neighbours, a volunteer of the Boswerf and students of class 1TH1, interns and a teacher of CLZ all came to finish a ton of work:
- A huge pile of tiles, rock and other rubble was disposed of in consultation with and with help of the municipality;
- The entrance Ridderschapslaan, close by the dog-toilet, was closed off. A new entrance Griffenstijnselaan will be made;
- The strip of land where flowers will be planted has been cleaned of tiles and was covered with a layer of compost. Now the wait starts for the weather to allow planting new vegetation;
- The bee-hotel is starting to get it's outline;
- Many tree-stumps have been removed.
Below is a picture gallery with an impression of the day.
ZingjeRot, the popchoir from Zeist.
Singing mostly pop classics with Dutch lyrics by Jan Rot is what makes the choir Zingjerot special, hence the remarkable name of the choir.
Meanwhile they have built up such an extensive repertoire that they could present their first own concert. On November 4th. and 5th. 2017 it actually happened; a beautiful, sparkling program with many songs from the choir, interspersed with singing by the Heeren van Nunspeet, dance and accompanied by great musicians.
I found it a great experience to be able to record this colorful spectacle with plenty of movement. And from the reactions of the choir members it was obvious that they too found this photography part a success.
Nieuwegein celebrates her anniversary!
Leading-up to the 50th anniversary in 2021, this anniversary was celebrated on July 1st. 2017 with the first ever “CityZingt”. A cosy sing-along festivity by and for Nieuwegein and it's surroundings.
For this first edition several choirs, solo singers and musical partners had signed-up. Next to the many Nieuwegein local participants there were performances by Staytuned (known from The Voice Kids) and the Dutch Event Choir. The band Rockaoke played for and with singers that spontaneously volunteered to perform for a large audience.
This first edition of CityZingt, staged in “de Kom” of City Plaza was a success.
Next year CityZingt will be back on June 30th. 2018.
The organizers had invited me to take pictures at this event. Above an example and below a slideshow.
