Hilversum municipal pin for GOK
On Wednesday 25 November '20 - in the week of the festive inaugural concert of Benjamin Goodson as chief conductor of the Groot Omroepkoor - the Groot Omroepkoor received the municipal pin of Hilversum from mayor Pieter Broertjes. Soprano Jolanda Sengers accepted the award on behalf of the Groot Omroepkoor. The municipal pin is awarded in special cases as a token of gratitude to inhabitants or organisations that have rendered great service to Hilversum.
"The Groot Omroepkoor is special and unique. It is the only Dutch professional choir for the large symphonic repertoire. It is also still closely affiliated with Dutch Public Broadcasting. We are proud of our professional Hilversum choir. I think it is special and beautiful that on behalf of the college I may award the Groot Omroepkoor with the municipal pin", says mayor Broertjes.
