Tour 2019

lex van someren with band & choir from the Ukrain

"Lex and his musicians succeeded in immersing us in another world for the duration of the concert - a world full of love, full of peace, full of heart touch, connection and heart opening.... From the first note pure goosebumps.... an indescribable gift! "


Magical music and stage art: elixir of life for heart and soul

Under the motto "As in heaven", the Dutch sound and stage artist Lex van Someren, who lives in Baden-Baden, together with his band and the new choir "Voces Leopolis", takes his guests on a musical journey for heart and soul into extraordinary worlds of sound. Everyone who has experienced a concert with Lex van Someren knows that this sound artist knows how to embody the dimension of the soul in his music and stage art. His singing works like a poetic language of the heart, which touches the deeper sides of people. Through the authentic power and the grace and devotion in his singing, a deeper connection with the audience arises as if by itself.

With the sensitive singing of his four octave voice, Lex van Someren celebrates many pieces in his soul language - sounds and sounds without rational meaning. The chants and the enchantingly arranged and set music transform the concert space into a lively and devotional room of silence, where one can let the soul dangle and recover physically and mentally from the tensions of everyday life.

New world music, fascinating rhythms, meditative sounds, spherical sound space experiences, choir chants, mantras, Lex van Someren's soulful voice and the silence combine to create a soothing


atmosphere that lingers long after the concert. His unique music leads the listener into different sound worlds, which strongly remind of the music of e.g. Pink Floyd, Loreena McKennitt, Secret Garden and Enya.

In this music, sonic and rhythmic elements from many eras and cultures flow together and combine to create powerful soul music. His more than 40 CDs are popular worldwide because they move listeners' hearts across all borders.

The audience is invited to experience and enjoy the concert without applause. "It is an important concern for me to lead my guests - if they wish to do so - into a deep, inner silence with our music and sounds, a silence full of vitality, strength and energy," explains Lex van Someren. "Those who enter into this quiet relaxation gain access to their inner powers for body, mind and soul."

This radiant, vibrant world of music conveys a special message of peace that lingers long after the concert.

Lex van Someren

An Artist who touches deeply

with his voice and his music


This new ensemble was born from the desire to combine the music of Lex van Someren and Frank Steiner with a live choral sound - on stage in concerts and in preparation for the larger project "Mantra Symphony" (starting in late 2020).

The professional singers from the western Ukrainian city of Lviv (Lviv) have the common interest and professional curiosity to explore new paths besides their traditional way of making music. They share an appreciation of the music of Lex van Someren and

„Voces Leopolis“

the willingness to break new ground in live concerts with this collaboration.

Since the phenomenon of "sound" and its quality is of very great importance for the "As in Heaven" concerts, the singers of this ensemble with their Slavic voices and how they sing together will be an enrichment of a completely new kind. The concerts will experience a wonderful tonal completion and an even greater liveliness and power due to the presence of this choir.

The director and founder of "Voces Leopolis", Bohdan Sved, who will also be active as a conductor in the realization of the Mantra Symphony project, pursues a very similar goal as Lex van Someren in his vision as a professional musician and choir-orchestra conductor: The lively making of music in the most diverse places - live - in front of and together with the audience.


Look forward to a whole new sublime concert sound!


Spherical music and sound space experiences with Lex van Someren & Band. The top-class musicians around the sound artist Lex van Someren master their instruments skillfully in the colorful light of the stage and create an unforgettable sound experience in the most creative way. Johannes Hustedt on the flute surprises almost every song with a different type of flute or the soprano saxophone. Cellist Vache Bagratuni often provides the singing counterpoint to the melody or the upper voice, while virtuoso percussionist Nils Tannert impresses on his huge arsenal of percussion and also comes into his own soloistically on the o-daiko and black drum with a lot of physical effort. Frank Steiner, who in addition to keyboard and trumpet playing is also the musical director of the group, lays a carpet of sound constantly shimmering in different colors as a foundation.

But the healing musical touches of the group around singer Lex van Someren do not stop there. The latter has a vocal range of four octaves. With his deep bass he wraps the listeners in a feel-good sound mantle or leads them with his head voice to undreamt-of mood heights. Together with his soul language - a melodic sequence of syllables - but also with mantras, or with a Hail Mary sung in Latin and German songs with deep-impacting lyrics that get under the skin, he opens up very special sound spaces in which there is also plenty of room for musical improvisations by the whole band.

The listeners can find an inner peace through the music and songs that just feels good. Already after a few songs this special spark jumps over to the majority of the visitors. Through their radiant, vibrant world of music, Lex van Someren and his artists convey a special message of peace that lingers long after the concert.
