In 2011 Rosemarie was granted a chapter in the widely known method Muziek op Maat for high schools. This teaching module introduces students to the carillon and the cultural inheritance of this instrument by means of pictures, a questionnaire, and audio and video examples.

ROAMING BELLS

Roaming Bells is a unique concert form which Rosemarie uses to perform with several companies like percussion groups, rock bands, mens chorus, soloist singers, brass ensembles and symphony orchestras and so on. When no live musicians are available an orchestra on tape can be used.

Roaming Bells offers the audience a varied programme with music from baroque to classic, from romantic to modern and from pop to house. With this programme Rosemarie tours with travelling carillon home and abroad. She is very successful with this music for young, and old and the audience is always pleasantly surprised and enthusiastic.

With the  travelling carillon Rosemarie brings the tower instrument carillon keyboard and bells closer to the audience. It is visually attractive because the audience can not only hear the carillonneur play but also watch her play.

Roaming Bells is extremely suitable for special Events, Festivals, Promanade concerts. With the Roaming Bells show and CD Rosemarie is very successfull at home as well as abroad.
