Current Fellowship Participants
Meet ISPA's 2017 Netherlands Fellowship Program participant Tamar Brüggemann!
Director, Festival Wonderfeel
From 2001 to 2013 Tamar Brüggemann (1981) worked in different departments for the Early Music Organization, famous for its Utrecht Early Music Festival, the world’s largest early music festival with more than 180 events in 10 days. In 2013 she became the managing director of Holland Baroque. A radically versatile baroque orchestra, that likes to explore other musical styles – jazz, folk, French chansons, klezmer, singer songwriting – without losing sight of its baroque foundation and the experience it wants to establish for and together with the audience. Since 2012 Tamar has also been developing, together with her co-director, Wonderfeel, an outdoor festival for classical music, located in the woods in the centre of the Netherlands. The format takes its cue from pop festivals, with seven stages and a continuous program from 12 AM until midnight, featuring (inter)national artists in 90 concerts over 3 days. The first two editions of the festival in 2015 and 2016 were a great success, inviting the Dutch national newspapers to remark “Wonderfeel is a fairy tale” (de Volkskrant), “A festival to love” (De Telegraaf) and “Wonderfeel is unique in the world” (NRC Handelsblad). Tamar holds a Master's degree in Language and Culture Studies from Utrecht University and has attended several Musicology courses at the Humboldt University in Berlin. In 2014 she was one of the global fellows of ISPA and a participant at the EFA Atelier for Young Festival Managers in Edinburgh.
