My name is Hugo Bouma, I’m 26 years old, a born and bred Amsterdammer. After several side tracks, including a degree in physics, I eventually threw myself completely into music after all, as composer (which I study, in Utrecht), arranger (also for Ricciotti), and lyricist. I additionally play viola, in the Sweelickorkest, amongst others, where I was also the section leader for the violas for several years. In the mean time I’ve already been playing with this lovely orchestra for 3.5 years, after hearing from all sides and for many years that it would really be perfect for me. The timing was never convenient, but suddenly on one occasion it was. Since that moment, I can’t imagine leaving.
