The Koninklijke Harmonie van Thorn (Royal Wind Orchestra of Thorn, KHT) was founded in 1812 as the Philharmonic Society of Thorn. In 1865, the title “Royal” was granted to the orchestra by King Willem III. Throughout the years, the orchestra has been very successful, both on the national and international level, and is generally known to perform on the highest level in amateur wind music. In 2008 the KHT was crowned Dutch National Champion in the highest division for the 14th time, and in 2013 they won the first Open European Championship for Wind Orchestras in Luxembourg. The orchestra has always been led by prominent conductors, in recent years by Sef Pijpers and Jan Cober, to name but a few.

Norbert Nozy is actively involved with the Royal Wind Orchestra of Thorn as a conductor since 2004. Before that, among many other professional activities, Nozy was chief-conductor of The Royal Symphonic Band of the Belgian Guides. Apart from this, Nozy has had an impressive career as a saxophonist. He still performs regularly as a soloist, is a much sought juror, and teaches at the conservatories of Maastricht and Brussels. The composition “Daphnis et Chloë” will be performed together with the choir composed of members of the “Toonkunstkoor” (Roermond, NL) and the “Philips Philharmonisch koor” (Eindhoven, NL).

Each orchestra will play a programme of 45 – 60 minutes, including the test piece “Cerebral Vortex”. This composition was written by Øyvind Moe. He composed this for Musikkforeningen Nidarholm for their participation in the World Music Contest in Kerkrade (2009, NL). The composition is published by Norsk Noteservice.

The title refers to a form of writer’s block caused not by lack of ideas, but rather by the inability to channel and give form to the madness swirling inside the head of someone with a great desire to express something. In this respect, the piece can be said to be a composer’s exercise in keeping focus. A limited amount of material is repeated and treated creating a development that always has a solid anchor point. This is emphasized by the return to the opening theme towards the end.

Moe’s musical background lies in the bands of his home town of Bergen, Norway. He studied composition at the Norwegian Academy of Music, where his teachers included Bjørn Kruse, Henrik Hellstenius, Lasse Thoresen, Asbjørn Schaathun, and Olav Anton Thommesen. He also studied musicology and music technology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), as well as software development at the Bergen University College. As a performer, he has many years of experience playing the saxophone in several of Norway’s leading amateur wind orchestras.

Concertband Maasmechelen, the wind orchestra of the Academy of Maasmechelen, was inspired by the wind orchestra Limburg Maas. This top orchestra of the Limburg coal mines was a trendsetter after the Second World War.

A cooperation with the famous Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in 2011 resulted in a 15-day concert tour through the United States. The orchestra has made an international tour in China (2014) and will make another tour in Russia (2017). In 2015, the orchestra won the Vlamo Open Championship for Wind Orchestras.

Conductor Mark Prils studied at the Koninklijk Vlaams Muziekconservatorium Antwerpen and the Maastricht conservatory where he obtained diplomas for horn, music theory and writing.

He has played the French horn in both national and international orchestras, including the European Union Chamber Orchestra. At the age of 19, he started conducting several high-level bands in Europe. Over the years, he has become a successful conductor and has won several prestigious prizes. Currently, Prils is managing director of the Maasmechelen Academy of Music, Theatre and Dance and he is a much sought jury member for national and international music contests.
