  Roder Jongenskoor   [Roden Boys Choir]    (est. 1 April 1985) Classical Choir of Men and Boys 
Print Friendly Page 
Roder Jongenskoor The Roden Boys Choir was founded in 1985 in the small town of Roden in the north of the Netherlands by choirmaster Bouwe Dijkstra. His main aim was to form a boys choir in the English style, featuring English choral music in its broadest sense. The choir is renowned for its consistently English choral style, not only in terms of its size and vocal range, but also in the attention it gives to the vocal quality of individual boys and young men. The choir employs, in every respect, the musical approach that has led to the high standards for which English boys choirs are so famous.

Today, the choir is directed by Rintje te Wies who also directs Martini Boys Choir Sneek (Martini Jongenskoor Sneek).
