  • Concert trip 2022!
    Every other year, SHOT goes on a concerttrip. After 4 years, it was finally time in the summer of 2022 to go abroad. This year, we went to Munich and Florence.

    We explored the cities at day time. The evenings were spent in parks, Biergartens and Irish Pubs. We gave both planned as well as spontaneous concerts and we finished off with the amazing Toscana Music Festival!

    We have truly had a wonderful time together and look forward to our next trip abroad. Especially thanks to Aron and Jesse, we have some great photo’s to remember this trip by. Also a big thank you to our sponsors: Moneybird and Meester van de Brink!
