A Closer Look: VDOK!
Pieter Huizenga (18 years old) wrote this cheerful English march for Brass Band Pro Rege (Heerenveen) for their participation in the Golden Spiker Festival 2019.The march describes the feeling of pride, satisfaction and happiness of the band for their participation in the Dutch Brass Band Championships in 2018.
The idea of using the term "VDOK!" As a name came from one of the percussionists in the band. The cry itself comes from Anne van den Berg, conductor of the A-orchestra of Pro Rege. When preparing for the Dutch Brass Band Championships in 2018, he invariably encouraged the band with the slogan "Vol d'r op klatsen!" Or the abbreviation thereof "VDOK!". Pieter named the piece after this statement because it was a major motivation for the band at the NBK.
