After Mathematics at the University of Leiden the tenor Nico van der Meel studied choral conducting with Barend Schuurman at the Rotterdam Conservatory. He completed his vocal studies with Margreet Honig in 1987, participating in master-classes by, among others, Evelyn Lear, Ruud van der Meer, Robert Holl, Elly Ameling and Elisabeth Schwarzkopf. He made his début with the Concertgebouw Orchestra in the 1987/88 season, in the same year singing the tenor arias in Bach’s St John Passion under Sigiswald Kuijken. From 1989 to 1996 he collaborated in tours and performances with the Orchestra of the 18th Century under Frans Brüggen. With a concert repertoire ranging from the sixteenth century to the contemporary, Nico van der Meel has appeared with leading conductors, given Lieder recitals in Paris and Barcelona, and performed in all the principal chamber-music halls in Holland and undertaken major operatic rôles. He is a member of the Camerata Trajectina Ensemble and since 1981 has directed the William Byrd Vocal Ensemble.
