The master classes take place at the Theatre hall of “De Hilt” on the Hasselaarlaan in Eemnes and are open to the public: a unique chance to see these theatre personalities pass on their incredible skill and passion to a new generation of singers.

Mathilde en Maarten van der Grinten

Together with guitarist Maarten van der Grinten, two times on one night. First an intimate concert at the theatre hall of OBA on Oosterdokseiland for Pink Ladies on Stage/ Lesbian Pride and after that on a tiny stage in the canal in front of the Paleis van de Weemoed for Grey Pride.

Intensely sad Mathilde had to say goodbye to her sweet cook/caterer Aalt Vonhof, who at least 15 years cooked that extremely well, that it was sometimes impossible to play music.

At the funeral several female singers a.o. Julya Lo’ko and Lucretia van der Vloot sang.

Mathilde, as the opening for the liturgy, sang a-capella “What good am I without You” and as conclusion “Wonderful Life”, accompanied by Marcel Fisser and Lenee te Voortwis.





Sunday morning the 4th of March Mathilde was guest with Eva Jinek. Mathilde would already be on the show the Sunday before to talk about singers that ruin their voice, but she hardly had a voice herself that morning because of ruthless cold.”As if the devil had a hand in it, Mathilde twittered last week.

On November  11th Todd Rundgren will play the Paradiso Amsterdam  for the second time  with the Metropole Orchestra. For this concert Mathilde is invited as a special guest.
Mathilde, particularly in her early years, recorded a number of  Todd’s songs like ‘It wouldn’t have made any differenc’, Torch song (CD Breast and Brow), Real man, Pretending to care (CD Carried away), Lost Horizon, Tiny Demons (CD Under a blue roof)’ and ’ Just one victory (CD Choosy live!)’.
A number of  Todd’s songs that she performed live during her tours were never released  on CD.

What’s on the program will be a surprise but Mathilde in any event will sing a duet with Todd. ‘Love in disguise’ will be on the program as well.
