Boukje started singing as soon as she could speak. At first it was just with her mother behind the piano, but from her sixteenth on she took vocal lessons. After her Bachelor’s in History at the Utrecht University she decided that she wanted to explore as much as possible about singing and music. In 2017 she graduated as a mezzosoprano from the Fontys High School of the Arts. In 2019 she got her Master’s degree from the Royal Conservatory in Den Haag. Currently she studies with Maurits Draijer.
In the past Boukje performed as soloist in different concerts. She sang for example the alto solos in Bach’s St Matthew Passion, in Haydn’s Stabat Mater and the Christmas Oratorio of Saint-Saens. She also sang the role of Hänsel in the staged opera of Hänsel und Gretel from Humperdinck.
