Marcel Moester (Bass)

Born: The Netherlands

The Dutch bass, Marcel Moester, studied pharmacy at the University of Amsterdam after high school. While studying the music took an increasingly important place in his life. He took singing lessons with Margreet Honig, among others. In recent years he studied with Frans Huijts in Voorburg.

Marcel Moester has sung with renowned ensembles as the NCRV-Vocaal Ensemble, the Groot Omroepkoor and the Quink Vokaal Ensemble. Today he is part of the early music ensemble Camerata Trajectina

Marcel Moester has been performing for over 40 years as a soloist in concert and oratorio performances of Baroque music and the romantic repertoire. He has also participated in numerous recordings. In April 2000, during the Bach year, he was one of the soloists in a performance of J.S. Bach’s Matthäus-Passion (BWV 244) at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig. In October 2001 he sang Messiah in Halle (Saale), the birthplace of George Frideric Handel. In 2003 and 2006 he performed the part of Christ in J.S. Bach’s Matthäus-Passion (BWV 244) at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. In November 2007 he sang at the same place the bass part at the Deutsches Requiem by Johannes Brahms. In 2009 and 2011 he performed with Camerata Trajectina and poet Gerrit Komrij in a theater production on the painting De Zeven Hoofdzonden (The Seven Deadly Sins) by Hieronymus Bosch
