Jon Etxabe-Arzuaga (Tenor)

Born: Tolosa, Basque Country

The Basque tenor, Jon Etxabe Arzuaga, strated singing in a choir at the age of 14. After spending a few years at University studying philosophy, he decided to focus more on music and after some years of singing in many ensembles, his love for music brought him to the Netherlands. Here he studied singing at the Sweelinck Conservatoire in Amsterdam with Udo Reineman and Pierre Mak.

Almost immediately after his arrival, Jon Etxabe Arzuaga became a member of Cappella Amsterdam. He also sings with other groups such as Capilla Penaflorida and Vocalconsort Berlin. He is also a member opf Egidius Kwartet together with Peter de Groot, Hans Wijers and Donald Bentvelsen.

In this crazy and too often nonsensical world, Jon Etxabe Arzuaga still likes to believe that music can help us to be better and therefore to do better. Otherwise why keep singing?
