About us

A small team
but very dedicated and efficient

Managing director

Hannes de Vries

In September 2019, I (Hannes de Vries) started my own agency De Vries Artists.

I enjoy working for creative people, because I know that with this experience we can make beautiful plans come to fruition. In addition, I am service-oriented, well-intentioned, critical and constructive with a pinch of my own input and help to sell this to the rest of the world. That goes through the agency, which consists of a select group of artists, for which I make an effort.

I represent conductors and musicians with my company De Vries Artists and my portfolio has grown and with an exciting selection of artists. My passion is to get the right musician on the right stage and to enter into fantastic collaborations with halls, orchestras and artists. High quality in service and communication between all parties is paramount. Thanks to the experience of (board)membership of the IAMA (Board of Directors in the years 2012-2018 and again from 2021 – ) and as director of the Foundation for ‘Promotion Classical Music’ (which includes the kamermuziekdag.nl), I know how to reach both the national and the international playing field.

Are you a programmer or artist? Perhaps we can mean something to each other.

Call or e-mail, I am happy to help you.

Back Office Executive & Social Media Coordinator

Laura Sartena

I (Laura Sartena), joined De Vries Artists in October 22. By applying my passion and talent for administration and management, I help guiding artists to their goal and our team to better efficiency and achievements. Being a big admirer and frequent listener of classical music helps me grasp my ideas even better and be bound up in my work.

I was born in Vienna, Austria and live in Bordeaux, France.

I speak fluent English and German as well as intermediate French.

Our sustainability efforts

In order to be aware of the environment we always consider either we attend or not attend a concert by one of our artists.

Sometimes it is absolutely necessary, or just necessary to be nearby our artists. We show you how many concerts we were able to attend (or not). And which our main means of transport have been and how much trees we planted to compensate for our travels.

We donate the collected trees to Eden Reforestation Projects! see here for more of their projects.

We start counting per cultural season. From September 2023 onwards and refresh the status at the end of each month. Latest update (31/05/24).

The last season (22/23) we were able to ‘collect’ 254 trees through our travels for 67 concerts in Europe DVA attended. You see the total here below for the rest of the month.
