At the request of the Noord Nederlands Orkest (NL), Annechien is developing and directing eight videos for the online music program NNOotjes, intended for the lower primary school. Annechien let herself being inspired by the theme 4 seasons and selected based on this eight Dutch children's songs from the digital art education platform Eigenwijsnext.nl. These songs will be brought online into the classroom by singer/presenter Izaline Calister and the Noord Nederlands Orkest. The NNO thus hits two targets with one shot: both the Netherlands' oldest professional symphony orchestra creates a world of symphonic sounds at primary school and every season pupils will be taught eight well-known fresh orchestrated children's songs.

Each song has various play-along exercises (listening, singing, reflection and making music assignments) so that one can really sing along and play with the NNO. Throughout the year - appropriate to the current season - the videos will be published on the You Tube channel of the Noord Nederlands Orkest and the website of Eigen-Wijs Next.
