origins

Emma, Julia and Mascha founded Fuse in 2012, after they got befriended at the Amsterdam Conservatory, while studying classical- and jazz music. “We started off as a collective of musicians that share interest in all kinds of music. Our main goal: play all the music we love, no matter what background or tradition it represents.” 

To get things started, the group organized their own concert series titled ConFuse. In two years, nine editions took place, at an underground nightclub in Amsterdam. ConFuse became a creative playground for the young ensemble; experimenting with all kinds of musical genres and performing arts. Fuse worked with over 150 artists; dancers, musicians, actors, comedians, storytellers, musicians, painters and performed over 120 pieces of music. It was the perfect way for gaining the nessessary experience and motivation to kickstart an exciting endevour.  

“We started off as a collective of musicians that share interest in all kinds of music. Our main goal: play all the music we love.”
