In September 2018, singing coach Babette Labeij will open a second location of her singing school. The Babette Labeij Music Academy in Amsterdam is already very successful. Now she is opening a singing school in Rotterdam’s Groot Handelsgebouw. Does Babette look familiar? There’s a good reason. She is a famous singing coach on several TV talent shows such as The Voice of Holland, The Voice Kids, X Factor and Idols.

‘Rotterdam is the place to be!’

Babette Labeij is looking forward to her arrival in Rotterdam. ‘Rotterdam is the place to be! It’s progressive, entrepreneurial, positive and energetic. That’s the vibe you get from spending time in the city. Although I’m from Amsterdam, I want to fit right into the Rotterdam scene. In the Groot Handelsgebouw we have found the perfect location to provide singing and music lessons for Rotterdam and area residents. The grand reputation of the Groot Handelsgebouw is inspiring. I can’t wait to get started.’

George Voorhout, Assistant Director of the Groot Handelsgebouw, is proud that Babette Labeij chose the Groot Handelsgebouw. ‘We think it’s important that this building is multifunctional and integrated in city life. We already have a successful dance school in the Groot Handelsgebouw. With the arrival of the Babette Labeij Music Academy, we are starting to assemble an academy for performing arts. It’s great that we can accomplish this with such a high profile name as Babette Labeij.’
