The Board

Rosalie de Vries – Chairwoman

Hey! I’m Rosalie and I’m 22 years old. I’m currently a third-year psychology student at Erasmus University. I love singing in the choir (obviously) and not just because I love singing, but also because I made a lot of really great friends. I have been with the choir for three years and in that time I have been a very active member and now I’ll be even more active within the choir as chair!

As chair, I’m responsible for the organization and coordination of the choir. Together with my fellow board members, I make sure everything is running smoothly. If you have a question as a (possible) member about the choir, I’m more than happy to help you here or through our e-mail.

Sophie Schenkel – Secretary

Hi there! I am Sophie and I am a 23-year-old Master Student in Clinical Psychology at Leiden University. I joined the choir in September 2020 and even though most rehearsals were online during that year, the choir really grew important to me over the year. I love the energy of the girls and singing together makes me really happy. I joined the ACCO right away and after one year I felt that I wanted to participate even more, so I decided to join the board! 

As the Secretary of the choir, I am responsible for keeping contact with the members, answering emails, and taking attendance. I also organize the open rehearsals and auditions for the new members. I am looking forward to the coming year and if you have any questions, feel free to email me!

Iris Olde Dubbelink – Public Relations  

Hi! I’m Iris, a 19-year old medical student at Erasmus University. Last year, I joined the choir because I moved to Rotterdam from the other side of the country and I am glad I did so! I like singing and making music, especially with other people. Next to this, being in the choir means also having a lot of fun activities with all the other choir members, which I really love!

As Public Relations Manager I’m responsible for all external relations of the choir. I also have the honour of organizing the performances, which I’m already super excited about as we, unfortunately, didn’t get to perform last year due to the coronavirus.

Pippa Hofman – Treasurer

Hello hello! I’m Pippa and currently 19 years old. Next year I will be doing my third year of Business Administration at the Erasmus University. When I moved to Rotterdam, I knew nobody in town. I wanted to learn some new people, and I thought it would be great to make music with a group. At Eurekaweek I met the choir and I immediately knew that I would love to join. In the meantime, I met great people and had the chance to perform on the stage of Paradiso.

Now, we are two years later, and I am getting the opportunity to be the treasurer and be in the board of this amazing choir. This means I will be responsible for the money money money. Together with my fellow board and choir members, I hope to make a great choir year out of 2021/2022.

Ezgi Arifoglu – Marketing

Hey! I am Ezgi, a 22-year old from Cyprus the beautiful island! Currently, I am doing my Master’s degree in Media and Business at Erasmus University Rotterdam. I love singing and playing the guitar or piano in my free time, and I absolutely love singing together with the girls in the choir! I joined ESK in September 2019 and immediately fell in love with this amazing choir. As a result, I decided to join the board as the marketing officer.

As a marketing officer, I am responsible for the representation of our choir. I check and update our website and social media accounts such as Instagram & Facebook. In addition to our online presence, I am also responsible for the preparation of promotional materials such as banners and program booklets for our concerts! I am looking forward to contributing to ESK as the marketing officer this year.
