Dutch Edison winner, jazz singer Ineke van Doorn is a highly respected authority as both a singer and a teacher. She has been praised for her personal style and her seemingly unlimited vocal capacities. The Dutch Volkskrant called her ‘the adventurer among the Dutch Jazz vocalists’. She and guitarist/composer Marc van Vugt have been musical partners for more than 25 years, performing internationally their thoughtful and multi-layered original music that combines lyrical songs with expressive improvisations. They released 11 CD’s with line-ups ranging from a trio to a full orchestra and a classical choir and played in clubs and festivals in Canada, New York, Japan, France, Germany and Indonesia.
Ineke holds a master’s degree in jazz singing and graduated as a classical pianist. She is a voice professor at the ArtEZ University, Arnhem and is presently on the board of the EVTA – the European Voice Teachers Association. She teaches master classes and she lectures regularly, among others in Denmark, Finland, Latvia, Canada and France. Last year her 300-page book ‘Singing From the Inside Out, exploring the voice, the singer and the song’ was published.
