Quink, a Dutch vocal ensemble, will present a lyceum at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 16, in the Carter Center for Worship and Music at Bridgewater College.

Founded in 1978, Quink ranks among the top a cappella ensembles in the world. The group consists of professional musicians Marjon Strijk, Elsbeth Gerritsen, Harry van Berne and Kees Jan de Koning.

Quink utilizes a broad repertory that includes Renaissance-era music, Baroque, Romantic, Impressionistic, modern (especially contemporary Dutch) and folk-inspired works.

For many years, Quink has served as an ambassador for new Dutch music.

Quink’s first United States tour was so successful, the group now returns every year. Tours have included residencies at Dartmouth and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, as well as concerts in Spievy Hall in Atlanta, Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan and Houston Friends of Chamber Music. Quink gave its New York debut in Merkin Hall. The group is regularly invited to internationally acclaimed music festivals, including Tel Aviv (Israel) and Singapore.

The concert is free and open to the public.
